Message from the CEO of VRTRON

March 19, 2020 in News

Dear VRTRON Community
COVID-19 has become a reality for everyone. We are seeing our normal lives and our daily routines shift before our eyes. Our hearts and thoughts go out to those affected by this unprecedented event, and we cannot thank the medical workers and first responders at the front lines of this crisis enough.

Throughout these tough times, I am grateful to see communities come together, to see neighbours helping neighbours, and to watch happiness shine in times of darkness. I believe that this is what we must hold on to. We must hold on to the part of our daily routine that we can control. We can keep the smiles, the laughs, and the acts of kindness that we hold close.

We want to thank you for being a part of the VRTRON community and hope that you can find joy in the games that we make for you.  We will continue to do what we can to bring a smile to your day… stay tuned as we come with a surprise soon.

Thank you again. We will get through these tough times together.

A Night in The Forum VR released for PlayStation 4

May 24, 2019 in Announcements, Games, News

VRTRON Malta just released A Night in The Forum, an educational environmental narrative game, based on scientific reconstructions, that uses PlayStation®VR to magically immerse you in the world of Augustan Rome. Your story starts off with a little capricious trespassing in The Forum ruins. But things soon magically derail into a night-long adventure as a mysterious voice guides you back in time and into the shoes of a Roman military standing guard in The Forum.

“Octavian – later known as Augustus – brought the final civil war of the Roman Republic to an end by defeating Mark Antony and Cleopatra in The Battle of Actium. This ushered Rome into the longest period of relative peace in Europe – Pax Romana – and the status of freedom was restored.

By performing tasks, you’ll shed light on bits of knowledge, piecing them together to paint a
picture of Roman life at the epochal height of this civilization, during the 1st century.

Visiting the Forum of Augustus in Rome, will never be the same…

  • 1 player
  • DUALSHOCK®4 Vibration Function
  • HD Video Output 720p,1080i,1080p

Hatch (Rovio) levels up to 5G gaming with Samsung Galaxy S10 5G

April 15, 2019 in News

Hatch is kick-starting the 5G era in mass-market consumer services as part of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S10 5G device launch in the world’s fourth-largest games market.

As part of the cooperation, three months of Hatch Premium is included with purchase of the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G in Korea. Starting today, Samsung will also promote Hatch in retail stores across the country, while featuring Hatch as a 5G hero service in the Galaxy App Store and the Game Launcher app. High-profile Hatch League events — casual mobile eSports tournaments where everyday players can step up and become a star — are also planned for later this year.

For Hatch, the partnership with Samsung comes on the heels of recently announced collaborations with leading teleoperators such as NTT DOCOMO in Japan and Sprint in the United States. Working together with the world’s top operators and device manufacturers signals a major escalation of Hatch’s go-to-market pace globally, following the battle-tested service’s European soft launch.

Arkanoid Rising: A showcase for 5G gaming

Galaxy S10 5G users will also be among the first to play the Hatch Original Arkanoid Rising, a bold new reimagining of the arcade classic produced by Hatch in association with legendary Japanese developer TAITO.

A showcase for 5G gaming available only to Hatch Premium members, Arkanoid Rising is built from the ground up for streaming with social play at its core. Players can play solo or invite a friend online for a helping hand at any time for instant two-player coop, or face off in PvP mode for short, competitive block-breaking bouts. Competitors can add even more friends and invite them to spectate from multiple angles, all while keeping the voice chat line open.

Arkanoid Rising will be followed by more mobile exclusives — games which will be available in Korea only for Hatch Premium members with Samsung 5G devices.
