Carbon Studio is a pioneer in the Polish and global market in the field of game development and applications dedicated to VR technology. The idea to create a studio of our own came in 2014, when, after backing the Oculus Rift Kickstarter campaign. A year later, on the initiative of Alexander Caban, Karolina Koszuta, and Blazej Szaflik, Carbon Studio began working on its first projects.
In the spring of 2015, we took part in the historic first VR Game Jam organized by Oculus and Samsung. It was there that the concept of our sci-fi adventure game, Alice VR, was born. Its prototype secured us a place in the final round of the competition. We released Alice VR in October 2016, with CDP.PL (Klabater).
The next significantly important step in the studio’s development path was the release of The Wizards, a game that allowed players to take on the roles of powerful mages and cast spells using hand gestures. Soon after its release, the game became one of the best-rated VR games on Steam and Metacritic, as reflected by the numerous awards and accolades it earned. A year later, the title received a massive update called Enhanced Edition, which thanks to a number of important changes and improvements, was warmly welcomed by VR players all around the world
In July 2018, we released The Wizards – Trials of Meliora, a standalone VR game based on The Wizards, dedicated to mobile VR goggles.
In June 2020, the next installment in the series, The Wizards – Dark Times, saw the light of day. The title once again invites players to take on the role of powerful mages, this time offering a wider range of available spells, much better graphics, and a more expansive in-game world. By the end of 2022, games under the name of The Wizards series had reached total sales of more than 350,000 copies.
A major update for The Wizards – Dark Times is currently underway, which, in addition to numerous improvements to the single-player mode, also introduces the hotly anticipated cooperative multiplayer mode.
Our next title, Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall, was released in a PC VR version in late 2021 and debuted on the Meta Quest store six months later. The title takes full advantage of the incredibly rich Warhammer Age of Sigmar universe, with millions of fans around the world.
In 2019, Carbon Studio became a public company and became the first ever VR company to be listed on the NewConnect stock exchange, and in December 2022, we started cooperation with the leading publisher of the VR industry – Vertigo Games.
We also announced our newest title for May 2023. Crimen – Mercenary Tales is a humorous, extremely colorful, and adventure-packed action game, in which we will have a unique opportunity to visit seventeenth-century Europe and meet a number of interesting heroes characteristic of the era.
After the warm reception of Crimen – Mercenary Tales, it was time for something completely new. Mindset is a puzzle VR game based on handtracking technology, in which the player faces the story of his intricate past and challenging puzzles in the form of mysterious cubes. The game is available on the Meta Quest platform.
During the UploadVR Showcase Winter 2023 Carbon Studio announced its next title, Hunt Together, which is a VR horror game based on PvP gameplay. The game was released on the Meta Quest platform in January 2024, with the PCVR version following about month after.
