Exploring Virtual Worlds and Metaverse Games with Alexander Fernandez of Streamline Media Group

In this UpTech Report, CEO Alexander Fernandez of Streamline Media Group meets with us to talk about Metaverse games and the future of virtual reality.

At its core, Streamline Media Group is in the business of Metaverse video game development, building beautiful interactive worlds and Metaverse games for entertainment companies. However, calling them just video game developers is only scratching the surface.

For starters, Fernandez talks us through how his company recently helped a top fashion brand launch their Fall ‘21 catalog online in a virtual world. It gives us a small taste of what is going to be possible with VR marketing in the coming years.

We also discuss what it takes to start a professional video game company in 2022. If you want to become a video game developer, the trend is definitely leading towards immersive digital worlds and VR development. Just check out Roblox, Minecraft, or Fortnite if you want to get an idea of the incredible popularity of some of these platforms.

Although, as Metaverse technology continues to improve and evolve, we are going to see more and more players joining in.
