A Prague-based gaming company, LIV, has been willing to improve VR gaming experience for the audience as well by bringing the competitors and spectators even closer. For pursuing such development, the company has raised $1 Million in funding round. Even though, the funding amount is not highly attractive. But the list of investors supporting LIV includes remarkable names such as Palmer Luckey (Founder of leading VR company, Oculus).
Other supporters in the list are Prague’s Credo Ventures; Venture Capital Seedcamp; Techstars; Splitverse; co-founder and CEO of Beat Games, Jaroslav Beck; and VR company VIVE.
LIV is almost a 3-year old startup established in 2016. Now, the startup is assuming that VR gaming is the newly emerging platform with a promising network comprising massive opportunities. Moreover, several popular websites, such as Twitch, have made it possible to deliver live streams of video games without any lag. However, the spectator experience in VR isn’t very graceful.
