ForeVR Games Raises $10M to Expand its Wii-like Games Library
The games on ForeVR are made to be simple to play, much like Wii Sports. ForeVR has launched three games since its start in 2020: ForeVR Bowl ($20), ForeVR Darts ($10), and the most recent addition, ForeVR Cornhole ($15).
In its metaverse, ForeVR Activities offers informal VR games like darts, bowling, and Cornhole to remind users that VR is supposed to be enjoyable.
Today, ForeVR announced the closing of a $10 million Series A fundraising round, which will be used to expand its game library and solidify its position as the “Wii Sports of VR.” The Series A fundraising round was led by Lobby Capital, with Galaxy Interactive and Bessemer Venture Partners also participating.
On Meta Quest or Meta Quest 2, you can play single-player or multiplayer ForeVR games. In addition to exploring various “halls” and bowling lanes, such as bowling in Atlantis or playing darts in a British pub, players can acquire skins for their Cornhole bean board,/bags, bowling balls, and darts. They can also hear to music on jukeboxes powered by YouTube.
The business’s most recent fundraising will allow the “ForeVRse,” as Segal likes to refer to it, to keep growing. On November 17, the business will release its fourth game, ForeVR Pool, an 8-ball virtual reality pool game for all ages. For $20, you may get it through the Meta Quest Store.
Additionally, because the games are interconnected, players who own multiple ForeVR titles can connect with one another through in-game portals. According to CEO and co-founder Marcus Segal, users could bowl on the moon and then fly straight to a ForeVR pool hall in Texas using the portals.
Over one-third of the more than over 400 apps in the Quest Store are generating millions of dollars in sales, Meta bragged earlier this month. Despite his refusal to say how much money ForeVR has made, Segal told TechCrunch that it has beyond the $1 million mark.
