It’s unclear how much cash Dream Reality pulled in, but we know the funds will be used to build-out and accelerate the studio’s development pipeline.

The fledgling firm already has a number of projects in the works such as Hold the World, a virtual reality museum experience featuring Sir David Attenborough.

“We are really excited by the space where AR, VR and AI meet and can see amazing opportunities for new levels of immersion and human interaction,” commented Ranyard.

“Having backing from two successful and insightful investors enables us to accelerate our ambitions and is a huge validation of the talented team we have put together.”
