Our combination of gaming and enterprise WebXR utility solutions position Chicken Waffle to acquire a major stake of the XR market.

The OVERVIEW


We have an incredible track record of building quality content, with huge upcoming releases on the horizon

 

Chicken Waffle was founded in January of 2017, and has built an impressive portfolio of award-winning games and experiences. We have built and launched some fantastic original IP, alongside a library of quality work-for-hire projects for an amazing list of clients and partners! Our work has received several awards, including an Auggie Award for "Best in Show" at AWE 2019, and "Best eSports Experience" at CES 2020.



As we continue to grow our original IP, we have been expanding our game publishing pipeline to include several more amazing titles set to launch over the next 18 months. CEO and Founder Finn Staber is an industry veteran with a diverse skill set in game programming, design, 2D/3D Artwork, animation and visual FX. He has helped advise several successful tech start-up companies, and has consulted for several Fortune 500 companies to help build their R&D programs. He was Programmer/VFX Lead at Portalarium, and Co-Founder/CTO of the popular music platform, WaveXR. His leadership background, and strong knowledge-base for technology development, make him one of the top developers in the industry.


As an experienced development studio and game publisher, Chicken Waffle has the ability to build and deploy to Steam, Oculus, PlayStation, Viveport, XBox, Nintendo, iTunes, Google Play, Tencent and any additional digital gaming marketplace around the world.


THE Problem


Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are Still in Their Early Stages


From extensive market research, we have found that:


  1. The XR industry lacks market leaders for quality games and social eSports experiences. 
  2. Traditional PC and console games are less immersive, and provide less social connection.
  3. The AR/VR hardware industry is quickly growing user adoption, and players are hungry for more quality content.

THE Solution


Building the future of XR gaming


We are here to build immersive content for every major platform. 


Already having launched games in 38 regions around the world - we have developed award-winning location-based solutions, and are preparing to launch eSports and social games in malls around the world in 2022.





Chicken Waffle’s goal is to continue growing our publishing efforts to become one of the top game studios. We have built some of the best social experiences across the metaverse, and our industry connections open possibilities to grow our publishing library across the gaming marketplace.




Additionally, we’ve built an impressive portfolio of AR/VR games and experiences for a high-caliber list of clients and partners. We then continued to invest our revenue back into the company to grow our library of original IP, along with developing a robust framework of tools for building/publishing interactive content.


This award-winning original IP has grown a large audience with hundreds of millions of fans - thus, giving us a major opportunity for success.



THE Market


XR Gaming is a Multibillion-Dollar Market, and Quickly Expanding


Virtual reality is where the internet was 20 years ago - it’s a nascent but high growth market that has the power to change everything. 


The number of gamers worldwide is still on the rise and will exceed 3 billion by 2023. The global games market revenue for 2020 was about $159.3 billion, with a +9.3% year-on-year increase.


*Source


Additionally, the global virtual reality in gaming market size is expected to reach  $92.31 billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 30.2% over the forecast period. The intensifying demand for technologically progressive electronic games amongst millennials is anticipated to drive the market growth from 2020 to 2027.


Long-term growth for AR and VR headsets will be strong throughout the forecast period with shipments growing to  76.7 million units in 2024 - resulting in a CAGR of 81.5%.


Our Traction

Our core systems are some of the best VR production tools and paradigms in the world. We have built some of the most advanced cross-platform interactive experiences, and we are continuously innovating to improve our production pipeline.



We have received feedback from thousands of fans, and we are dedicated to creating the best experience for our audience. We continue to improve our framework and systems to maximise efficiency in cross-platform development, allowing us to publish to new XR hardware platforms with ease.



We have built an extensive interaction framework, along with multiplayer networking solutions for eSports, and some of the most realistic physics-based VR combat features in the world. Our wide range of quality IP allows Chicken Waffle to be positioned for success as the market continues to grow.

WHy Invest


We are Setting the Standard in the XR Industry with Quality Content, Along with an Amazing Work Environment for Developers


We have built the largest professional social experiences to-date, and we have grown a large fan-base of future gamers who love our brand. Baby Hands has the potential to become one of the biggest games in the VR marketplace. Combined with an amazing publishing catalogue of additional fun games and upcoming publishing announcements, Chicken Waffle is positioned to become one of the top game studios in the industry.


Our upcoming launches will appeal to our current audience, and help to grow our market presence to even more fans around the world. We also have plans to publish several games with indie studio partners over the next year. Our goal is to grow Chicken Waffle into a massive game publisher. 


Our first indie published title will be Cowbots and Aliens, which we have already acquired full publishing and distribution rights of the IP, and are nearly complete with development.


We are raising capital to ramp up our pipeline, and we have a solid foundation to build upon. We hope you will join us, and become a part of the future of gaming.
