Launched last week on Oculus to great reviews, OZWE’s «Death Lap» is soaring up the charts. The VR combat racing game has reached the top 5 on the Oculus Quest store.

The game was recently awarded the Gold Prize in the ‘Best VR Game’ category at the latest Halo Awards during the VR Days Europe. It is the fifth collaboration of the Lausanne-based studio with Oculus since their highly successful game «Anshar Wars» in 2014.

It wraps up a great year for Pro Helvetia-supported OZWE who has been named ‘National Winner’ in the 2019 European Business Awards, one of the world’s largest business competitions. In 2019, the studio was part the SwissGames delegations at GDC, Gamescom and VR Days Europe.
