In Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality News

November 24, 2021 – Resolution Games, creators of virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) games, has recently announced the acquisition of Zero Index to accelerate the growth of the Resolution Games library across all major VR and AR platforms. The games studio, based in Linköping, Sweden, currently has four employees and will be rebranded as Resolution Tech. Resolution Games stated that it intends to grow the team by drawing on technical talent in the East Sweden region. The company did not disclose the acquisition amount.

“The Zero Index team has a number of impressive accomplishments under their belt, including their exemplary work that helped us bring Carly and the Reaperman to Oculus Quest earlier this year,” said Tommy Palm, CEO and founder of Resolution Games. “Demand for great VR and AR experiences is growing at an exponential rate. With more hardware choices than ever in the pipeline from tech’s biggest players, having a team experienced in bringing games to different markets and platforms will help us continue to reach new players everywhere they choose to play.”

Tomas Ahlström, CEO of Zero Index, who will stay on as studio manager with Resolution Games, said: “Resolution Games has been an integral partner of Zero Index, so bringing our teams together in order to expand on the work Resolution Games is doing in the industry is an exciting step for both teams. We’re thrilled to be a part of the future vision and hope to have an even greater impact for the space now that we’re integrated.”

In addition to the acquisition, Resolution Games has also announced four recent hires. Commenting on the new team members, Palm added: “We’ve been very fortunate to bring such incredible talent into the company, all while striving for everyone to be genuinely happy to work at Resolution Games and feel that our output is a direct reflection of the success of this goal. With the continued enthusiasm we’re seeing from players, there’s been no shortage of opportunity to continue our team’s growth, and we are looking forward to doing that in a way that continues along the path toward this goal.” 

This latest announcement also follows on the heels of the company’s recent reveal of its next title, ‘Ultimechs’, which will arrive on major VR platforms in 2022. The company also revealed this month its plans to form a dedicated AR Studio to explore new gaming experiences for smartphones and augmented reality wearables. 

Finally, Resolution Games currently has several job postings and potential candidates who are interested in VR and AR gaming can visit the company’s website for more information.
