LOS ANGELES, Sept. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sensorium Corporation founded by Forbes-listed billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov, opens its doors for Unreal Engine developers from all over the world to create content for the Sensorium Galaxy, a social VR platform that provides users with access to a multi-user alternate universe.
The public launch of the platform is scheduled for the first half of 2021 with the release of two worlds: PRISM and Motion, both of which are built in close collaboration with the leaders of the entertainment industry, including Yann Pissenem, the creator of world-famous Ushuaïa Ibiza and Hï Ibiza nightlife hubs, and music streaming service TIDAL owned by globally-acclaimed artists such as JAY-Z, Lil Wayne, Rihanna, Daft Punk and others.
Meanwhile, Sensorium Corp is developing new worlds and activities to enrich the user experience. To realize the full potential of building a multi-level alternate world, the company invites Unreal Engine developers to join efforts in building the most advanced social VR platform within the "Creators Program."
As the initial step, Sensorium Corp will be looking at the different options for integrating projects powered by Unreal Engine into the Galaxy, varying from acquiring or investing in existing solutions to co-developing new projects. Partners selected through the "Creators Program" will get a chance to develop their own locations within the Galaxy benefiting from the opportunity to attract new audiences, increase monetization, and make use of the new marketing tools built in the Sensorium platform.
To join this exciting venture, projects need to meet a number of criteria. Applications can be submitted on Sensorium Corporation's website from September 10 to December 10. The results will be published by January 15, 2021.
Brian Kean, Chief Communications Officer at Sensorium Corporation: "VR technology gives us tremendous possibilities that are only limited by human imagination. We can build endless worlds and give users unlimited opportunities for self-expression. We want to work with the best Unreal Engine developers willing to build this ambitious multiverse with us. As part of the program, we are ready to consider projects of all sizes and find the best ways to work with each of them."
