Bringing Skee-Ball to VR with LAI
Posted in General
Dimensional Branding Group (DBG) is excited to announce a new licensing agreement between LAI and Bay Tek Entertainment to bring Skee-Ball into the world of VR.
Created in 1908, Skee-Ball® is the one and only original alley roller brand, manufactured by Bay Tek Entertainment. The brand stands for authenticity, camaraderie, and simplicity and loves bringing people together. Skee-Ball’s growing licensee roster includes East Point Sports, Trau & Loevner, Buffalo Games, Super Impulse, Basic Fun, Alchemy 3, Ocean Media, Running Press, and Gameco.
Titled ‘Arcade Legend,’ this VR game allows players to equip and play within a virtual arcade they will run, placing a selection of re-created LAI Games ticket redemption games within a virtual space, and including virtual re-creations of games ‘Skee-Ball’, plus ‘HYPERshoot’, ‘Speed of Light’, and ‘Stacker’. The game supports a multi-player feature to allow up-to-four players to take part at the same time, along with the ability to compete on global leader-boards, while the virtual arcade the player creates will be populated by Non-Player Characters (NPC), with numbers attending based on its effective layout and “reputation”, a metric of achievements in managing the arcade. The game is about to make its debut as a demo at Steam Next Fest in June and will be released on SteamVR in the coming months.
Bay Tek Entertainment, Inc. was founded in 1977 and is a family owned and operated business that is driven to provide fun and profit through innovative entertainment products and services. The company purchased Skee-Ball, Inc. in 2016 becoming the rights owner for the Skee-Ball brand.
