Enhancing the Mixed Reality Experience: Frame Labs’ Collaboration with Soul Assembly

In the ever-evolving landscape of virtual reality (VR) gaming, innovation is key to keeping players engaged and immersed in their digital worlds. Last year, Frame Labs had the privilege of collaborating with the esteemed UK-based studio, Soul Assembly, on an exciting project for their celebrated VR title, Drop Dead: The Cabin.

Our partnership with Soul Assembly was focused on enhancing the immersive experience of Drop Dead: The Cabin by introducing a Mixed Reality (MR) mode. This mode allows players to blend elements of the virtual world with their physical environment, creating a truly immersive and interactive gameplay experience.

At Frame Labs, we were tasked with handling all aspects of MR development, from initial research and development to testing various hardware configurations and refining the user experience. Our team delved into the intricacies of MR technology, experimenting with different approaches to seamlessly integrate virtual and physical realities within the game environment.

One of the key challenges we faced was ensuring compatibility with Meta’s presence platform SDK, which required meticulous attention to detail and extensive bug fixing to achieve optimal performance. Through diligent collaboration and perseverance, we successfully implemented the SDK, laying the foundation for a seamless MR experience on the Meta Quest 3 headset.

The result of our collaboration with Soul Assembly is evident in the recent Home Invasion update for Drop Dead: The Cabin. This update introduces new mechanics and experiences that leverage the MR capabilities we helped develop, allowing players to fend off enemies in a home environment inspired by their own surroundings.

We’re thrilled to see the positive reception of the MR mode in Drop Dead: The Cabin, with players praising the enhanced immersion and interactivity it brings to the game. The success of this collaboration is a testament to the dedication and vision of both Frame Labs and Soul Assembly in pushing the boundaries of VR gaming.

As we reflect on our partnership with Soul Assembly, we remain grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the continued success of Drop Dead: The Cabin. We look forward to future collaborations and innovations that will further elevate the VR gaming experience for players around the world.

Together with Soul Assembly, we invite you to embark on an unforgettable journey where virtual and physical realities converge in exhilarating ways.
