Lockwood Publishing to bring Avakin Life to Google’s new Daydream platform
Lockwood Publishing, developer and publisher of Avakin Life, the largest 3D virtual world on mobile, today announces its mobile app will be available on Google’s new Daydream platform. Avakin Life, which allows players to meet and compete as avatars, has seen its active user base double in size every 6 months for the last 2 years. ÒWe believe in the massive market potential of mobile VR, and our decision is a natural extension of our roadmap to provide an immersive experience on devices that support the Daydream platform,” observes Halli Bjornsson, Founder and CEO of Lockwood Publishing.
Instead of building a separate community from scratch, Lockwood Publishing embraces the new platform to provide users a great experience no matter if they are playing on an ordinary smartphone or on a Daydream-ready device. Bjornsson explains: “Either way, users will be able to meet and communicate with thousands of other players in this 3D world. The choice will be how immersive they want the experience to be.Ó.
