Owlchemy Labs is a 23-person team working on VR games for the last six years. The company got into VR early and has had a few big hits like Job Simulator (you might have seen all of YouTube playing it at one point) and Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality.

This success has resulted in an acquisition by Google, which allows the company to further their VR endeavors. With projectors like Cardboard and Daydream, Google is invested in mobile VR.

We look forward to seeing what Owlchemy Labs has in store for the future and what the two companies can do together.
