History

Munch started out as a game jam project we made for fun when we were in between projects at the office. We played around with Virtual Reality using a borrowed HTC Vive and got inspired by some of the cool games in The Lab. We fell for the idea of combining the VR mechanics of Xortex, The Lab’s interpretation of a VR Space Invader game with the design and gameplay of the classic eat-and-grow games such as Feeding Frenzy. We made a prototype in just four days and had pretty fun with it.

The following week, we went to GamesCom inCologne, Germany together with Sweden Game Arena. We noticed that one of the VR booths they had set up wasn’t used all the time, so we installed our little fish game on that computer. The result was staggering. People lined up to play the game, everyone from kids and nerds to investors and publishers wanted to munch away at the bottom of the ocean. By the time we got back to our office in Sweden, we had realized that we simply had to move forward with this project no matter what.
