LOS ANGELES – September 15, 2016 – Today The Rogue Initiative, a full spectrum production studio specializing in cinematic, interactive virtual reality, film, television and games, unveiled the very first key art and screen shots for its debut VR experience, Crowe: The Drowned Armory, the first chapter in the Crowe fantasy adventure series. Crowe: The Drowned Armory is planned to launch worldwide on major high-end VR headsets in early 2017.
Players will take on the role of Crowe, a young villager who must interact with in-game characters to solve puzzles, combat an alien onslaught, and uncover the secrets of an ancient temple that could help unravel the true past of his society.
Pete Blumel, co-founder and CEO of The Rogue Initiative, said: “The team is currently deep in development utilizing Unreal Engine 4 and excited to offer a closer look as we progress. We’re dedicated to building the narrative and world of Crowe in subsequent chapters and across various mediums including mobile VR and animation.”
The original Crowe franchise from the emerging studio, which launched earlier this year, will feature a beautifully designed environment where sci-fi and fantasy come together. In addition to Crowe, The Rogue Initiative earlier announced its collaboration with esteemed director Michael Bay for another upcoming franchise.
The studio is building out its slate of projects for a global audience across VR, film, television and games, and continues to engage investors and partners worldwide, including partners at the 2016 Tokyo Game Show in Japan this week, to produce and distribute its various entertainment properties.
