Black Cell is an independent team of professional game developers from Vienna, Austria
Bored of shooters
Bored of shooters in VR we have taken up the cause to get adventure games into Virtual Reality.
Focusing on stunning environments, narrative and great sound design, we strive to create experiences, where you can just relax and forget about your daily life.
Thanks to our small team size we are able to experiment and try out new concepts for Virtual Reality, which bigger teams would find too risky to explore.
What we believe most important in our projects
Especially in Virtual Reality the experience is everything.
Being immersed in a world which does not feel good to you can ruin the best gameplay.
This is why we push our sound and visual design so they meld together and create a new an unique atmosphere in each of our projects.
Breaking the limits
To create something new and exciting it is important to break the rules and push in directions, where others didn’t dare to go.
Being independent allows us to try out new concepts and experiment around, which leads to fantastic results.
Making you feel like you are actually in another place is not easy and distinguishes the good experiences from the bad ones.
To achieve this you need to address as many senses as possible.
By using good sound design and haptic feedback we are tricking the brain to do the rest of the work for us.
