Description

We are nDreams, an award-winning virtual reality publisher and developer with a portfolio of award-winning games, including Phantom: Covert Ops, Fracked,and Far Cry VR: Dive into Insanity.

In addition to supporting the release of our internally developed titles, we announced our Third-Party Publishing Initiative last year, to co-fund and support games from other studios. Our first title is cozy city creator, Little Cities. Following a recent $35 million investment, we’ve got even more incredible titles across both existing and future VR platforms to be announced soon.
