About Us

Hello World, We're Wizard Games!
A small studio making waves in mobile and now in VR.

Since 2013 Wizard Games has been working hard out of our Victoria BC office to bring vibrant arcade games to mobile phones and tablets. Our mobile lineup has included first person shooters, endless runners and real-time multiplayer battlers. Our games have been downloaded over 20 Million times worldwide with lots of awesome dedicated fans.

Fun factor has always come first for us. Everything else is secondary. This quest for fun experiences has lead us to the irresistible draw of VR. With our first VR title, Hoops VR, under our belt we are now working furiously on the project that we believe will unlock new levels of competitive multiplayer fun within VR - Cowbots and Aliens!

 VR GAMES

Cowbots and Aliens

Now showing an early preview demo at PAX West!

Part multiplayer competitive shooter, part social platform, part physics sandbox - Cowbots and Aliens will push social competitive multiplayer VR to a new level of fun. Grab, throw, flip, smash, shoot, interact with EVERYTHING in an all out intergalactic Wild West brawl!  

Flip a table and take cover, break a chair over your friends head, hurl a tomahawk, jump out with six-shooters blazing or just practice shooting beer bottles out of the sky. Cowbots and Aliens is a wild west brawl scene brought to life by robots, aliens, the magic of VR and you!

Hoops VR

Hoops VR is our first published game made specifically for the HTC Vive. We fell in love with how fun it was to simply throw things in VR so basketball seemed like a no-brainer. Hoops VR is a frantic global free throw competition. Hoops pop up in a whack-a-mole style fashion while the player tries to sink as many baskets as possible. The basketball physics has been tuned to create the most realistic basketball experience you can have in a video game. We made sure to include local and global leaderboards so everyone can join in on the competition to be the ultimate free throw champ. There are four different play modes including an airplane throwing mode. Like real basketball it's pretty addictive.
