Earth Day is an annual event celebrated on April 22, 2018. Worldwide, various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection.
In the spirit of Earth Day, Avolve Innovations unveiled it’s latest ‘Scuba’ project to the public at Echo Hill park in Flemington, New Jersey. The goal was to notify the public of a new virtual reality experience in which the player controls Scuba the Sub in this new virtual reality game. As Scuba, you must fight to rid your underwater home of the harmful pollution that poses a serious threat to you and your ocean friends.
“We had a great turnout,” says Shamar Armstrong, co-founder of Avolve Innovations. “We had a lot of people visit our table during this Earth Day event. We were pleased to see just how much both parents and kids were excited to see that we weren’t just creating another video game, but that this game is based on a real-life situation regarding the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, that poses a real threat to our environment.” Brian Sprinitis, also co-founder of Avolve Innovations, added, “As people play our game we know they will be completely engulfed with the beautiful gameplay that our developers have put together. One of our main goals is to help instill a sense of urgency. Our hope is that through our game people will see the importance of keeping our world clean and in turn will also want to do more to help support the environment. As a technology company, we aim to spread awareness to this growing problem by having people experience our game for themselves.”Avolve Innovations’ table consisted of its 1st cinematic trailer for the new Scuba VR game. We also had a recycling game set up in the field to teach kids about the different types of recycled materials and placing them in the correct bins. Additionally we had a VR demo of the ocean reef that unveiled Scuba in his underwater environment at the coral reef, and many giveaways such as Scuba the Submersible’s Ocean Odyssey t-shirts, virtual reality headsets, and carry-on bags made from recycled plastic.
