BOSTON - Dec. 18, 2019 - PRLog -- Metro VR Studios (MVRS), a Boston-based start-up and independent virtual reality (VR) video game development company, announces it's ready to deliver to avid gamers what they crave: next-generation VR action and adventure games that are fully immersive and told through compelling storylines. Starting with the February 2020 release of the company's first game, Orion13, VR gamers will experience open-world locomotion and realistically-articulated virtual body features that give the player a fluid, fast-paced, first-person, action-filled VR experience, all set to an original sound track.

Scott Matalon, founder and president, MVRS, said, "We've set out to push the user experience by creating an immersive VR game that plays like a movie and feels like you're the main character on a spectacular adventure. What sets our games apart is that we put gamers into a realistically-articulated VR body that moves quickly and fights furiously through an intricate series of levels combined with hands-in-game interactivity and complex puzzling."

Brian Levine, executive vice president, MVRS, "Our games are for gamers. They're for the other ten million Scotts out there who, like Scott, are looking to play a next-generation VR action and adventure game that has a deep story but is also full of Easter eggs and humor. The only difference between Scott and other gamers—when Scott couldn't find VR games he wanted to play, he designed and programmed one himself."

MVRS is made up of an eclectic group of friends, Scott Matalon, Michael Clebnik and Brian Levine, who all share a passion for entrepreneurship, and for making a splash as the small fish in a big pond. In the late 90s, the trio disrupted the online e-commerce industry. In December 2016, they once again banded together to create an independent studio more in-tune with what hard-core VR gamers want.

Aside from gameplay, another critical way MVRS is differentiating itself from AAA publishers and others is by releasing games in quick succession. Gamers won't wait years between titles. Orion 13 (http://orion13vr.com/) is part of a planned trilogy. Additionally, MVRS has two other games well into development: Quest of the Pirate King and Kid Air Combat.

MVRS is one of a limited number of independent studios selected to participate for each of Sony™, Microsoft™, and Oculus™ VR developer programs. MVRS has worked closely with the Oculus Start development team and will initially offer its game on the Steam.com and Oculus Store portals for the HTC and Oculus headsets.
