ILMxLAB is based in San Francisco, California. ILMxLAB is Lucasfilm’s immersive entertainment studio, pioneering an exciting new era of interactive storytelling through virtual reality and mixed reality experiences. Working with acclaimed creators and designers, the company transforms beloved properties into living worlds that invite you to step inside and become the hero of your own personal adventure.
On the 21st of May, 2019 ILMxLAB created their very first VR game; Vader Immortal: Episode I. The game was a big hit with VR gamers, not to mention Star Wars fans. Because of its success ILMxLAB created a follow-up ‘Vader Immortal: Episode II’ which they released 4 months later, on September 25th, 2019.
Sticking with Star Wars here, ILMxLA launched ‘Vader Immortal: Episode III’ just two months after the release of its predecessor.

Dispatched into hostile wetlands in your tactical kayak using your paddle to steer and move stealthily through hostile and remote locations, utilise military weapons and equipment to evade and neutralise the enemy threat. Engage your targets lethally or infiltrate unnoticed from the shadows: it’s your mission to execute your way. Phantom: Covert Ops is stealth action redefined.
The Lab offers eight different minigames, each giving a look into the unique ways that VR could interpret various video game genres. These include: an Angry Birds analogue, a tower defence game, an intergalactic shoot ‘em up, secrets galore, and the chance to become a robot mechanic. The rest aren’t really games per se, it’s more that they consider what avenues VR might go down in the future. Amongst these are an interactive solar system, detailed CT scans of the human body and a “virtual holiday” in the Icelandic wilderness, where you’re accompanied by a robotic pup.
