Catapult Games is an independent game studio with 4 full-time developers. It was founded in 2017 by Chris Caulfield and Dane Jennings. It was apparent to them that virtual reality was going to change the world and they would have to act fast in order to be on the cutting edge of this emerging technology.
They began by getting a crash course in start-up operations at the IgniteU accelerator in Troy, NY. By the end of IgniteU, Catapult Games was an incorporated studio with a working prototype of their VR climbing game.
Don’t Look Down was released on April 18th, 2019 on Steam and Oculus Store, playable on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. The game has 4 distinct zones: earth, ice, lava, and tech. Each zone has 8 levels that explore new challenges and skills. After the initial release, the team will port the game to PSVR and Oculus Quest. Then be sure keep your eyes open for the next game!
