Part of Opposable Group, games and VR research and development studio Opposable Games focuses on connected multiple-device gaming. The company’s proprietary OneTouchConnect system allows cross-platform devices to recognise each other.
As well as producing their own content, Opposable Games works with a range of organisations to help bring their own material to immersive life. For the University of Bristol, Opposable Games developed a cognitive behavioural therapy PC game called Pesky gNATs for children in therapy. With the Wellcome Trust, the company created a microscopic virtual pet game called Mycrobe.
The system connects devices across iOS, Android, Mac and PC for a true shared-gaming experience. Single and multi-player gaming is supported, and for developers, the system is available as a Unity plugin. The plugin includes example codes and scripts.
The company’s biggest game is the alien-infested, tactical sci-fi action of Salvaged. Players command a salvage ship fighting for survival in a new galaxy.
