“Maloka” in partnership with acclaimed developers Koffeecup and HOO KOO E KOO would like to welcome users to the mindful corner of the metaverse. Maloka is an upcoming virtual reality meditation game and experience coming soon to the Oculus Quest platform, with companion apps for iOS and Android.
Created by celebrated wellness authors Sukey and Elizabeth Novogratz (Just Sit, The Well Daily), Maloka helps users build and maintain their meditation practice through world immersion, experiential learning, and guided experiences.
Maloka transports users to their own island where they meet their Spirit and are guided by The Universe to embark on a journey into their mind. As players evolve their practice they’ll grow their island with a variety of plants, sculptures, and more to create their own tranquil escape. Stunning and vibrant visuals await practitioners in Maloka, from portals to island worlds to cosmic vistas and serene landscapes.
Each guided practice in Maloka features accompanying sonic and visual elements that have been extensively researched and designed to maximize Beta and Theta brain waves to encourage a meditative flow. In addition to the VR experience in Maloka users will also be able to track their progress with the game’s mobile companion app.
Maloka will be bringing its innovative meditation experiences to the Oculus Quest platform later this year. The team is partnering with industry-leading wellness experts and Virtual Reality Therapy (VRT) organizations to expand their content offering, allowing for users to unlock an expanding library of experiences such as sound baths, movement meditations, and more.
