Conspexit and Kuju Team To Create AR
Two UK-based studios team up to create an AR mobile videogame for social change.
Recently established London-based company Conspexit Games Studio has teamed up with Kujo to create a new augmented reality (AR) videogame aimed at social change.
So-founder Eirik Moseng has brought together a team consisting primarily of ex-PlayStation names such as Claire Boissiere and Russ Harding, who previously worked on projects such as PlayStation EyePet and PlayStation VR Worlds.
Kuju turned its attention to virtual reality (VR) and AR earlier this year, subsequently producing The Chainsmokers Paris VR, an exclusive for the PlayStation VR.
Though details of exactly what the forthcoming mobile AR title will entail are yet to be revealed, the teams at Kuju and Conspexit have promised immersion and artistry in a title that not only challenges the skill of players, but also offers opportunities to be involved in social change.
“This is an ambitiously creative project; realising our innovative vision will be no easy feat and we can’t think of anyone better than Kuju to work with on it,” said Russ Harding. “The studio’s track record speaks for itself and with their team working alongside ours we’re confident that our debut game will be a truly awe-inspiring, immersive AR experience.”
“After the success of The Chainsmokers and a long history with camera-based titles going back to Sony’s EyeToy, we’re excited to take on what will be our first modern AR project,” added Brynley Gibson, Head of Studios at Kuju. “The team at Conspexit are driven to push the boundaries of AR and I know that bringing their vision to life alongside them will be hugely rewarding.”
