Perilous Orbit is a Redmond, Washington based VR development studio and publishing house. It's a fast-paced, tight knit team of highly skilled and experienced engineers and artists. In June of 2016, after only three months of development, Perilous Orbit, in conjunction with Cherry Pop Games, released Pool Nation VR on Steam. PNVR opened to outstanding reviews and maintains an incredibly high user score and an excited and supportive user community. We're continuing development of PNVR to support Oculus Touch, and Sony Playstation VR and we're looking for a new team member.
