Worldwide Launch - Allumette


Since we first introduced our second VR movie, Allumette, earlier this year, we’ve been overwhelmed with the love, support and celebration we’ve received from the VR and film communities. When Allumette premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, we were honored and humbled to bring VR further into the film industry and show a new way to tell stories that everyone in the world can appreciate.

Now, we’re pleased to announce that we’ve released Allumette to the world on Oculus Rift, Sony PlayStation VR, Steam VR and HTC’s Viveport.

The experience runs for a little more than 20 minutes, which is one of the longest VR movies to-date. Since the release last week, we’ve been blessed with an outpouring of positive response from the media and the community at large (such as on Reddit and other social media).

Of course, none of this would have been possible without the incredible support from friends and family near and far, our investors, media, and VR enthusiasts & influencers, as well as those who have spent countless hours bringing Allumette to life. “Thank you” hardly feels sufficient to express our gratitude and appreciation for your support.

Whether you’re a gamer, film enthusiast or early tech adopter, we hope you will love Allumette as much as we do and will share the piece with your family and friends.
