IS A STUDIO OF GAME DESIGNERS ON A MISSION TO SAVE THE WORLD BY BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN ENTERTAINMENT TECHNOLOGY AND REAL-WORLD SOLUTIONS

Over the last seven years, their mission has been to provide an environment that brings game developers together to build the games of today and the metaverse of tomorrow.

As digital experience developers, 302 Interactive has adopted the best practices of modern game development, product design, lean, and agile methodologies to create a framework to help build metaverse applications across verticals that we call “Everyday Play.” From virtual training to education, attractions, and beyond. 302 Interactives’ vision to “turn everyday life into a playful experience” is the foundation on which they build digital experiences.

Since the company’s founding, 302 Interactive has continued to pioneer in the growing space between games studios and application development and has established itself as a local leader in XR product design and metaverse experiences through its work. Early on, 302 Interactive endeavored to publish their games, but the focus shifted as they continued to find inspiration in the real-world application of 3D real-time game engines and emerging technologies like augmented reality and virtual reality. The team saw an opportunity for the principles of game design and the talents of game developers to be applied to real-world solutions. 302 actively engaged with various industries to identify complex problems that could be solved using the engines to build the most prominent games. In that, the “starving artists” and indies of the games industry could also apply their skills to more than just entertainment.

Today, 302 Interactive operates at the intersection of games, technology, and human experience to “save the world” and empower others to further develop this budding subset of the technology and games industry. Its headquarters in sunny Orlando, Florida, put it at the center of a growing sector in the area. Central Florida is a growing destination for simulation and training. It also features some of the most highly awarded and largest (by enrollment) universities that specialize in teaching game design and real-time 3D development principles. With that, 302 has helped build the local community over the past several years by sponsoring events and pushing initiatives to help support professional development and hiring professionals in the industry.

The industry in which 302 operates is still taking shape; once called digital experience, the term metaverse technology has become a common term to describe the realm 302 inhabits. On the horizon, 302 sees an opportunity to help shape the industry and support its growth by developing an ecosystem for the next generation of companies and developers to contribute to the broadening “metaverse” industry.
