Virtuix, a leader in active virtual reality (VR) and the developer of the popular Omni motion platform, has announced the launch of “OmniverseTM”, a proprietary content delivery and arcade management platform for use by commercial Omni operators around the world. The Omniverse platform is said to offer 15 of the top VR titles at launch, including the popular horror experience Affected – The Manor, Stonepunk Studios’ highly anticipated adventure game Primordian, and the acclaimed fantasy title Karnage Chronicles.
Virtuix is one of the earliest issuers to raise capital under Reg A+. In 2016, Virtuix raised $7.7 million by crowdfunding on SeedInvest. Over 1600 individual investors participated in the securities offer.
Jan Goetgeluk, founder and CEO of Virtuix, said they were very excited about the quality and quantity of the games luanching on their new platform. Virtuix is poised to become a standard necessity for gamers everywhere.
“We’ve collaborated with some of the world’s top VR content providers to make sure we offer an exceptional set of experiences to our customers, including fast-paced multiplayer first-person shooters, fantasy RPGs, and even casual games offering relaxed exploration. Omniverse transforms the Omni from a standalone hardware input device to an exciting and complete VR entertainment system for our worldwide customers,” said Goetgeluk.
Mark Paul, co-founder of Fallen Planet Studios, developer of the VR horror hit Affected – The Manor, said that Omniverse represents a significant opportunity for them to launch more than a thousand commercial entertainment systems all at once.
“We are excited to release Affected on the Omniverse platform and reach a worldwide audience in places that we hadn’t been able to capture before.”
Virtuix said more games will soon follow but the following 15 titles are available now:
- AFFECTED – The Manor

Omniverse will also offer a VR interface where players can preview, launch and switch games from inside the headset. Operators can set the gameplay time for their customers, manage multiple Omnis from a single device, and access online analytics on usage and gameplay. The Omniverse platform automatically tracks content usage and facilitates payments from commercial operators to game developers on a dollar-per-minute basis.
“With Omniverse, the Omni has now become a complete gaming entertainment solution,” says Ilya Polokhin, founder of the Hubneo VR Lab in New York City. “Our patrons can choose from a long line-up of awesome Omni games from within the device, and we can manage all our Omnis from a central console and track gameplay stats and earned revenues in real time.”
