From the Future is an independent virtual reality studio based in Denton TX, that has a long history of game development. Our team has been involved in pioneering VR work for the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Samsung Gear VR, and Google Cardboard systems.


The Beginning

From the Future, formerly known as Jovian Minds, was founded in 2008 by a team of veteran designers, artists, and coders. While under the name Jovian Minds, the team worked mainly on developing mobile based games, releasing titles such as Trouble in Tin Town. From there, the team rebranded to become From the Future, and in 2014 showcased their first VR collaboration on the Oculus Rift: a promotional project based around the critically acclaimed film Pacific Rim. Since then, the team has been pioneering a number of VR experiences and contract work to create more engaging content for clients and the industry.


After dozens of VR experiences on multiple platforms, From the Future began focusing on several internal game projects. At the 2016 SXSW the company debuted a 4D escape room experience entitled Amazing Escapes: House of Death. Participants were chained up in real life to match their predicament in the game. Using only magic, they had 3 minutes to solve the room puzzle before being killed by a mechanical axe man. Solving the puzzle would free them both in the game and in real life as the Arduino controlled belt lock would unlatch, releasing the player from their chains. Amazing Escapes is still a work in progress but has taken a backseat to Hopalong: The Badlands. In Hopalong, players take on the role of a stick-horse riding sheriff out to rid the countryside of the notorious Dynamite Gang. Also in the works is Flying Blades, an Asian martial arts inspired game where you fly through the air with your swords and battle demons.

Trouble in Tin Town
Trouble in Tin Town is a turned based strategy game inspired by children’s wind-up toys from the 1950s. Players fight through three different campaigns, each starring a different toy faction. As you progress through the campaigns, players battle alongside Davy Crockett and his rambunctious critter hat, mad horror writer Edgar Allan Poe and more. Help a dinosaur detective solve a heinous murder, brawl with cupcakes in boxing gloves, set off giant pyramid eyeball traps, and take over the White House. Abraham Lincoln and the Historicals guide you through the first campaign, in which a Tin Town conspiracy threatens to undermine the Historicals from all sides. http://www.troubleintintown.com/.
