We have several major updates to share with you, including a new Omniverse game, new distributors in the UK and Central America, and new Omni accessories including the highly anticipated Omni Overshoes.
New Omniverse Game: The Exorcist – Legion VR
We are thrilled to announce our latest Omniverse game: The Exorcist – Legion VR. Set in the Academy Award-winning world created by horror maestro William Peter Blatty, you play a police detective investigating cases of demonic possession. Each case features a unique demon that the player will need to exorcize. Not for the faint of heart!
We worked extensively with publisher Fun Train and development studio Wolf & Wood to optimize The Exorcist – Legion VR both for the Omni and for location-based entertainment. See a trailer video below:
We also released a new version of Omni Arena that features new weapons and improved VR menus, as well as an improved and better-integrated tutorial to teach players the game mechanics quickly and easily. Also, voice chat is now enabled!
We developed a web-based application that allows for easy browsing and learning about all our Omniverse games – check it out here. We also created a two-minute promotional video showing all the current Omniverse games in a condensed highlight reel – see below:
We currently have seven more games in development for Omniverse, which we plan to release at a steady pace throughout the rest of the year. All our Omniverse games are optimized both for locomotion with the Omni and for use at location-based entertainment (LBE) venues. Games created for LBE require a different approach from consumer games published for home use on Steam and similar platforms.
New Omni Distributors: Central America and United Kingdom + Ireland
We are pleased to announce that we have signed a distribution agreement for all countries in Central America and Mexico with APEX, the region’s leading provider of racing and other simulators. APEX has years of experience installing and supporting simulator products, and we are excited to welcome them to the Omni family. If you are located in Mexico or Central America and would like to purchase an Omni, contact Ramiro at APEX at email@example.com. You can visit their website here.
We also signed a distribution deal for the United Kingdom and Ireland with Luna Trampolines, also known as International Leisure Products (“ILP”), the world’s leading manufacturer of indoor playgrounds and soft play equipment. For more than twenty years, ILP has acted as a top supplier of indoor entertainment solutions to entertainment centers around the world. The Omni is a perfect fit for their product portfolio, and we are excited to partner with them. If you are located in the United Kingdom or Ireland and would like to purchase an Omni, contact Shaun of ILP at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can visit their website here.
New Omni Accessories
We are pleased to announce that we have launched the following new Omni products. If you are based in the U.S., then these accessories are available to you for purchase today at our online shop here. For customers outside of the U.S., please check with your local distributor on availability and timing. You can find our list of international distributors here.
The Omni Overshoes slide over a player’s own footwear, allowing players to keep wearing their own shoes while playing on the Omni. The Omni Overshoes come in 3 sizes: S, M, L.
Our new harness design no longer has the straps around the player’s legs. The removal of the leg straps has many advantages, including a much-decreased setup time and increased throughput, more comfort for both the player and operator, better walking form, and no more issues for customers wearing dresses.
Note: the strapless harness is only available for new commercial orders and is only available in size Medium at this time.
Daily cleaning of the Omni Base is required to keep your Omni functional and to maintain a good player experience. Our Maintenance Essentials kit includes the following items to keep your Omni in good condition:
• A spray bottle to apply the Omni cleaning solution to the Omni Base
• 20 packets of soap (approximately 80 cleaning applications per packet)
• A towel to clean the Omni Base
• A hook for storing the cleaning towel and spray bottle on your Omni’s left tower
The Omni Soap box contains 20 soap packets for cleaning the Omni Base. Each packet provides approximately 80 cleaning applications. This product is intended as a refill for the Omni Maintenance Essentials kit and is NOT a standalone product.
For more information on any of these new products, please visit our products page here.
We’ll be back next month with the latest updates and events from the Omni world!
