VANCOUVER, B.C. - TheNewswire - July 15th , 2019 - YDX Innovation Corp (TSXV:YDX) (OTC:YDRMF) (FSE:A2PB03) ("YDX" or the "Company") would like to announce that, with the support of The Walt Disney Company Brazil, it has started to commercialize the exclusive new Arkave VR product: "Mickey Mouse and the Golden Heart".
As announced previously on the news release disseminated earlier this year, the Company has been developing the game since the 1st Quarter and is now reaching its final stages of development, being set up to be launched by the end of the 3rd Quarter of 2019.
The attraction was designed as a stand-alone, pop up feature, for shopping malls and other commercial locations, including indoor theme parks and Family Entertainment Centers. It will be offered as a pay to play attraction or a free activation sponsored by brands. The Company will charge for licensing, setup of each location and maintenance. The product will be launched and tested in Brazil while negotiations for global distribution are underway.
A special themed arena was designed to accentuate the mood and set up the tone of the adventure, featuring photo opportunities for social media and an augmented reality digital postcard. The Company is creating a dedicated website to promote and sell the adventure, including a video teaser, that will reveal parts of the gameplay.
"The team is thrilled with the results of what we are developing. We believe this will be one of the most immersive and entertaining experiences in Virtual Reality ever created. We are raising the bar, delivering a multiplayer adventure that will please all ages. It has been a great experience working with the Disney team and a privilege to create a game featuring such iconic characters." - Stated Francisco Chaves, Head of Arkave VR.
"Mickey and the Golden Heart" is a cooperative VR game in which players join Mickey Mouse and Minnie to find the fabled "Golden Heart" treasure. To do so, they must explore mysterious rooms inside a Pyramid, solve puzzles and face menacing creatures.
