About Metanaut:

Metanaut is a small award-winning team of virtual reality enthusiasts who are passionate about building a better future. Our focus is to develop fun and valuable VR games & apps that are exceptional in design.

We are one of the first VR studios in Vancouver, and have won some of the world’s largest VR competitions. Just recently, we were accepted into Magic Leap’s grant program which only accepted three Canadian studios—our studio being the only studio accepted in British Columbia.
