This week we talk with @NathanBurba, co-founder & CEO of @Survios, for an in-person conversation at his company's headquarters in Los Angeles. Survios is well-known in the VR space for their highly-polished game, Raw Data, that set revenue records and grossed over $1M in the first month of its release on early access. Nathan shares with us more about Survios as a company, how he thinks about game design, innovative locomotion techniques deployed on their Sprint Vector title (currently in development), and how the Raw Data world is expanding and what we can look forward to in the next release of the sci-fi game. We also chat about why Survios has raised almost $55M in funding, how MGM (one of their lead investors) might influence their strategy, and discuss the importance of location-based activations -
