"Our SlimeZone partnership with
"IMAX VR is designed to be a highly social, group experience - which
makes Nickelodeon's SlimeZone a perfect fit to bring to our centres,"
SlimeZone is a multi-player social VR experience that allows kids and families the opportunity to interact in a Nickelodeon-designed virtual world. After selecting an avatar, users of all ages can slime blast their friends with Nickelodeon's iconic green slime, play games such as ping pong and basketball, create art projects using glitter streams and colorful paint, and watch fan-favorite Nickelodeon cartoons.
Non-virtual reality players can participate alongside their friends and family as they explore the Nickelodeon world in spectator mode, by flying a virtual drone from a device to slime players.
Nickelodeon first debuted SlimeZone at VidCon US 2017, an annual multi-genre online video conference. SlimeZone was built using Epic's Unreal Engine and Nvidia FleX particle system for slime simulation.
Launched in 2017, the
Nickelodeon recently announced a financial investment in Dreamscape Immersive, the location-based VR startup, whereby both entities have committed to produce an experience using Nickelodeon's IP for kids and families.
