Who We Are & Our Services

Coal Car Studios is small Vancouver based studio working on making Virtual Reality more social. Founded by two brothers, we know that games are not only about their single player experience. We have released multiple games for Google Cardboard and are currently working with the HTC Vive to bring a full room shared VR experience. A common element among all our VR experiences is that it allows you to play with others, be it from players around the world like Morris Cardboard, or in the same room like our Vive game. Our goal is to bring players together in and out of Virtual Reality.


At Coal Car Studio, we are betting that the future of VR will be social. VR doesn’t have to be an isolating experience. Discovering new virtual reality is awesome, and we want to create a safe space to be able to experience these worlds with your friends and family. Using innovative technologies and game play mechanics we will shatter the stigma around virtual reality needing to be an isolated experience to be immersive and bring the joy of couch co op back into mainstream gaming culture.


Virtual reality is an immersive multimedia or computer-simulated life, replicates an environment that simulates physical presence in places in the real world or imagined worlds and lets the user interact in that world. Virtual realities artificially creates sensory experiences, which can include sight, hearing, touch, and smell.
