Flat2VR Studio Launches: Get Ready for Official VR Ports

Flat2VR is a community dedicated to the transformation of traditional video games into immersive VR experiences. Esteemed titles such as “Cyberpunk 2077,” “Half-Life 2,” and select entries from the “Resident Evil” series, particularly those based on the RE Engine, have been converted into PC VR mods through their expertise. Additionally, they have recently introduced a VR injector for Unreal Engine, seamlessly converting numerous Unreal Engine games into VR experiences.

However, there exists a limitation: Flat2VR is fundamentally a collective of developers and enthusiasts. These PC VR mods, lacking official authorization, are somewhat cumbersome to install. To address this issue, as reported by MIXED, Flat2VR is poised to embark on a new phase. Some of the community’s leading developers announced on a podcast the establishment of Flat2VR Studios.


Eric Masher articulated the studio’s founding purpose: “Number one: We want to take some of these developers who are not doing this for their full-time job right now, but want to make a living making games. We want to make those dreams come true. Number two: We’d like to be able to do some of these things and get them to a platform where everybody can play on. Most of these mods are only PC and a lot of people are not able to play them. So if we can take some of these amazing people, have them help us make a port and put it on the store where everybody can get it, that’s what we’re trying to do.”

Moreover, Flat2VR Studios revealed in the podcast that they are in the process of developing an official VR version of a game, with a release anticipated between late 2024 and early 2025. The title remains confidential, but it’s noted to be a popular game on Steam and Switch.

The first two developers collaborating with Flat2VR Studios are Raicuparta and Holger “Cabalistic” Frydrych. Raicuparta is renowned for the VR adaptations of “The Firewatch” and “The Stanley Parable,” while Holger “Cabalistic” Frydrych is the lead developer of the “Half-Life 2” VR mod.
