About Kinemotik Studios
Kinemotik Studios is the dream indie story. Beginning their journey at a virtual reality game jam in 2017, the duo fell in love with VR, game development, and each other. Kinemotik’s founder, Ashley Cooper, transitioned her 10-year career in architecture to game development. At the same time, Brady Wright left his position at an award-winning virtual reality studio to work full time developing their passion project together: Audio Trip.
As Audio Trip grows, Kinemotik Studios continues to develop new games and experiences and participate in game jams whenever possible. Currently, the duo works in Albania, living their dream as creative nomads in love.
About Audio Trip
Developed by Kinemotik Studios and published by Andromeda Entertainment, Audio Trip is a flow-focused VR rhythm-dance game where you catch gems, ride ribbons, smash drums, and dodge barriers while dancing to hit music choreographed by a professional dancer. Plus, custom-level support with the in-VR choreography editor means the dance party never has to stop.
Audio Trip was conceived in 2017, starting as Rave Runner in March 2018 at SXSW and becoming Audio Trip in April 2019. The transcendent title was first released in Early Access to VR Arcades internationally in August 2019, with Oculus Rift, Steam, and Viveport to follow in October 2019. Audio Trip made its Quest debut just months later, on May 7, 2020. Since its launch, Kinemotik has continued to support the game with content updates, including over 21 newly choreographed songs, and a special Cardio mode focused specifically on physical wellness. The team is currently hard at work backstage getting Audio Trip ready for Full Release later this year.
