Nashville, TN (October 22, 2020)
The Virtual Reality game DvG: Conquering Giants, which is based on the heroic and timeless biblical tale of David vs. Goliath, is set to release Nov. 25. The game provides a wholesome interactive experience with content that’s safe and fun for everyone—kids, families, and the expert or novice gamer.
DvG will be published by VVRG (Virtuous VR Gaming), a new company that was founded by the company’s CEO Bill Issler. No newcomer to the VR space, Bill founded IndustryLift which is designed to empower the next generation of thinkers and doers by building a purposeful network of entrepreneurs and workers within the steel trades to explore new ways to boost the industry. IndustryLift allows those interested to ‘test’ out certain skilled jobs using VR to help decide which is the best match for their skills and interests, to help direct them to fulfilling careers.
For the concept and creation of DvG: Conquering Giants, Bill also enlisted the genius of Hollywood visual effects artist Jarom Sidwell who’s known for his work on blockbuster films such as The Avengers, Avatar, The Hobbit, The Adventures of TinTin, Man of Steel and Transformers. Jarom brings his vast talent and entertainment experience to the table, coupled with Bill’s business savviness and passion to provide gaming content that’s family-friendly, educational, and entertaining through DvG: Conquering Giants.
DvG is a reimagined immersive experience that puts players in the shoes of a young King David, a shepherd boy. Featuring a vastly detailed world of exploration, the player must protect their flock from predators like wolves, bears, and lions before taking on the giant, Goliath himself. True to the biblical narrative, David is only armed with a sling—a unique-to-market VR SLING! As a supplement to game itself, Virtuous Gaming has also created a special F.A.Q. page, which provides a detailed background of the David and Goliath story. It addresses questions like “Who were David and Goliath?,” “Where is the story mentioned in the Bible?,” “Do the Jewish and Christian views of this story differ?” and a whole lot more.
