Minibox makes a big debut at Bowl Expo 2019
Miami-based start-up, Boxblaster, is set to launch its four-player virtual reality area – Minibox – in booth #465 at the International Bowl Expo in Las Vegas from June 26-27. Boxblaster has installed one Minibox location in Miami-based VR Park at Dezer World, and are now ready to expand.
Equity-backed Boxblaster offers Minbox for $45,000, half the cost of comparative VR solutions for which providers charge operators two to three times the cost upfront for hardware and installation. Boxblaster’s long-term partnership with operators includes a 25% revenue share that includes hardware updates every 24 months, a commitment to delivering 4+ games per year, and full operational support.
“Minibox is a VR cash machine for locations who want ROI in 6 months”, explained Boxblaster Co-Founder Vladimir Avdeev. “In a market dominated by too few companies, with overpriced products, it’s time to rise stakes and profit from results.”
Boxblaster employs a team of 20 people in game to deliver the company’s unique Replay Boost AI, which makes every game dynamic and new, driving high repeat play value. Minibox offers four custom games at launch, which adapt to players in realtime, adjusting difficulty to meet their skill. Waves of enemies and boss monsters change depending on the skills and number of players. Player positioning within the games is also randomized. Replay Boost AI ensures that Minibox games are fun and challenging for everyone, every time, even after numerous plays.
“It usually takes VR companies two to three years to provide as much content as we are launching with Minibox”, noted Avdeev. “We keep players in mind, so we make multiplayer games with Replay Boost AI that appeal to all ages and skill levels.”
Minibox includes top-of-the-line hardware including HTC Vive Prio Headsets and 2070 Nvidia graphic processors. The turnkey 225 square foot arena features contemporary design that can be customised for each location.
