For Ignition we (Meta) are primarily focused on the development and exploration of game concepts that target the midcore player – more mainstream than niche, and broad in scope with compelling Meta Quest 3 interaction mechanics. We are open-minded towards all genres of games and care deeply about you building the game you’re most passionate and experienced in. We’re looking for mixed reality concepts just as much as conventional VR, and have enhanced interest in simulation games, active sports, and accessible social titles.
