Filament Games | Educational Game Developer

While it’s no secret that the technology faced a slow start, it seems the VR renaissance has finally arrived!

Between the release of highly anticipated games like Half Life: Alyx and Star Wars: Squadrons, heightened investment in VR for healthcare and workplace training, and the (unsurprising) popularity of Facebook’s all-in-one Oculus Quest headset, VR is hot right now – which is particularly exciting for us as an educational game development studio which also specializes in VR learning games!

With VR sales on the upswing and lots of new Oculus Quest and Quest 2 devices out in the wild, we thought now would be the perfect time to highlight some of our favorite educational experiences available on the system. Check out our list below, and let us know on Facebook or Twitter if we missed any of your favorites!
