YDX Innovation announces development completion of Disney VR Game, Two New Titles and a Focus on Consumer-based VR initiatives.
VANCOUVER, B.C., April 27, 2020 — YDX Innovation Corp. (TSX-V: YDX, OTC: YDRMF, FSE: A2PB03) (“YDX” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its Arkave Studios team has completed the development phase of the previously announced game “Mickey Mouse and the Golden Heart”. The Company would also like to state a new strategy focused on consumer-based content for gaming and corporate training.
The Company has recently finished the development of two other gaming titles in Virtual Reality: “Romans from Mars” in association with Liquid Media Group (“Nasdaq: YVR”) and a new title, not announced before as requested by the client, for an animation title being currently broadcasted by Cartoon Network in the USA and Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) Canada.
“The location-based entertainment industry has recently been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, with most locations being closed, worldwide. But it’s important to have new content ready to go, so when this unprecedented calamity is finally over, we will have great content waiting for people looking for a distraction and a sense of normality. We are in direct conversations with our clients and malls partners that are preparing a post-COVID plan of action”- stated Daniel Japiassu, CEO of YDX Innovation. “Part of these discussion include the possibility of bringing virtual experiences directly to consumers.”
Arkave Studios and YDreams Global, have been responsible for seventeen Virtual Reality games and experiences for clients such as Coca-Cola, Shell, Cisco, McLaren and the University of British Columbia.
Recent studies by market research companies indicate Virtual Reality as one of the key sectors seeing growth opportunities during the COVID-19 pandemic and renowned publications as “The Guardian” report the increase in popularity of the consumption of virtual experiences during the Covid-19 crisis and a change of consumption habit that should change the growth rate of new technologies like Virtual and Augmented Reality after the pandemic has passed.
Sectors of Gaming and Education/Training are among the sectors identified as a probable increase in the growth rate.
As a result of this new reality, YDX would like to announce the expansion of the Arkave Studio’s initiatives for content development, both for gaming and corporate/enterprise training. At the same time, the Company will seek to make leadership changes and expanding its salesforce to include a broader representation of its services and geographic markets.
The Company will focus on the creation of content with the potential to be consumed directly from homes as well in entertainment centers. The YDX team has started conversations with clients with the intention to further develop the current games to be adapted as a consumer-based content, but also looks forward to starting the development of its own new consumer-based titles developed by the Arkave Studios team.
YDX is making these changes at a time of unprecedented challenge for its clients. New content, titles and game customizations are core to their success, fueling the need for transformation and continuous innovation. Digital disruption is blurring traditional industry lines, making immersive and dynamic experiences an imperative. This disruption and other changes are happening at the intersection of reality and virtual experience.
