A small team of game devs based out of Edmonton, Canada. We have embraced VR a new medium for the future, and are committed to being pioneers in the VR space. Crafting experiences that will inspire future developers for years to come.

History

Early history

Treefortress was formed in 2013, and we released our first title, Bardbarian, in Feb of 2014. Bardbarian was released initially on iOS, Android and BB10 and then ported to Steam a couple of months later. It was met with high critical praise on mobile, and received a MetaCritic score of 85%. On Steam, it received an average of 93% positive reviews. Bardbarian was featured in the Humble Android Bundle 9, in Sep 2014. Our second title “JumpJet Rex” was released in April of 2015 on Steam with a 97% positive rating, and has since been ported to XBox One, with help of our friends at LOOT Interactive.

After that

In spring of 2016, we strapped on the VIVE for the first time. Everything changed at that point! Our port of Bardbarian for PS4 was immediately discarded, and we began work on a small prototype of Ping Pong, which would eventually turn into HoloBall.
