VERTIGO GAMES’ AFTER THE FALL® BLOWS PAST ARIZONA SUNSHINE® SALES RECORD IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS
Rotterdam (NL), December 17, 2021 – Vertigo Games, the VR specialist publishing and development arm of the global Koch Media Group, has already sold more copies of After the Fall at launch day, than during Arizona Sunshine’s entire first month on sale. The new VR action FPS earned more than $1.4 million within 24 hours, which is more than Vertigo Games’ platinum-selling and award-winning global hit Arizona Sunshine did in its first month on sale back in December 2016.
After the Fall’s sales performance is another one of the telltale signs that the VR entertainment industry continues to grow rapidly. The pace of this growth demonstrates the opportunities for game publishers and developers in VR and is a key factor in the Koch Media / Embracer group’s acquisition of Vertigo Games in September 2020 as well as Vertigo Games’ own expansions this year, including the acquisition of Force Field (now Vertigo Studios Amsterdam) and SpringboardVR.
Vertigo Games has established itself as a pioneer in the VR gaming industry with a portfolio of high-quality VR games, including Arizona Sunshine, A Fisherman’s Tale and Unplugged. Having 5 more high-end titles in production over the upcoming years, they are doubling down on its investment in VR gaming and actively signing new publishing deals with 3rd party developers.
After the Fall, which was developed by Vertigo Studios (Arizona Sunshine) and published by Vertigo Games, launched December 9 on Meta Quest 2, PlayStation VR and Steam with full 4-player cross-platform multiplayer support. Through cross-play with up to 4 players and a social lobby with up to 32 online players, Vertigo Games is bringing the entire VR community together on a scale that has rarely been done before.
