Tampa – Big Cat Rescue’s groundbreaking virtual reality experience will now be available to students across the United States through VictoryXR, the leading VR school curriculum creator.
“We are particularly happy to have created this relationship with VictoryXR because they have already proven to be thought leaders in this field,” according to Carole Baskin. “Their relationship with schools will help us reach students everywhere.”
Big Cat Rescue VR will be available on the VXR.Direct platform for schools, homeschool families and kids everywhere. The platform is an all-you-can learn platform which includes content from Carolina Biological, Rome Reborn and learning units from Wendy Martin, America’s Hologram Teacher.
The VR experience puts students in the position to be a wildcat tracker assistant while they learn how to find and protect tigers in the wild. In addition, they assist in the search of a missing tiger through a guided forest experience with a Big Cat Rescue tracker named Jamie.
“When we launched the virtual reality frog dissection, we won an international award. But still, it’s the inside of a frog. I love this Big Cat VR because we are rescuing fully intact animals and that’s a fun outcome,” said Steve Grubbs, founder of VictoryXR.
The wildcat rescue experience will work on Oculus Quest, Rift, Vive, the HP Reverb and other Windows VR systems. It is available now at VXR.Direct. The VR experience was first released in the summer of 2020 but was overshadowed by the Netflix documentary.
This game is not a mobile game, rather it is a virtual reality experience viewed through a headset. According to the Entertainment Software Association, 49 million gamers now own a virtual reality console, driving VR game sales to double on STEAM in 2020. The game was developed by Xennial Digital.
