Resolution has acquired Zero Index

Virtual reality specialist Resolution Games has bought Swedish developer Zero Index.

No sum was put on the deal, which sees its four employees joining the company as the rebranded Resolution Tech. Zero Index is best-known for bringing Carly and the Reaperman: Escape from the Underworld to Oculus earlier in the year.

“The Zero Index team has a number of impressive accomplishments under their belt, including their exemplary work that helped us bring Carly and the Reaperman to Oculus Quest earlier this year,” Resolution CEO and founder Tommy Palm said.

“Demand for great VR and AR experiences is growing at an exponential rate. With more hardware choices than ever in the pipeline from tech’s biggest players, having a team experienced in bringing games to different markets and platforms will help us continue to reach new players everywhere they choose to play.”

Zero Index CEO Tomas Ahlström added: “Resolution Games has been an integral partner of Zero Index, so bringing our teams together in order to expand on the work Resolution Games is doing in the industry is an exciting step for both teams. We’re thrilled to be a part of the future vision and hope to have an even greater impact for the space now that we’re integrated."

Resolution has also announced four new hires in head of people and culture, Natalie Mellin, general counsel Ebba Waltré, product manager Johan Gästrin and finance director Rickard Åstrand.
