ABOUT US: Archiact Interactive is a Vancouver-based Virtual Reality (VR) Game Studio that develops new and unique ways for people to play games and interact with each other. We partner with IP holders, large publishers, and tech brands to create and deliver immersive, high-end game experiences across multiple platforms with a special focus on building new tools for cutting edge emerging technology. We are a hybrid Vancouver-based studio with employees working remotely from all over Canada.

OUR GAMES: We have published over 30 VR tiles since 2013 on every major platform and in every major global market.

OUR VALUES: At Archiact, diversity is developed and directed by our employees. Inclusion is the way we show our commitment to this core value.
