We have a passion to create innovative virtual experiences that make a positive difference in physical health, mental well-being, education, and research. FireflyVR is a development studio built by successful video game veterans. The FireflyVR team combines our extensive experience and science-focused development to build innovative new technologies with health and technology partners. We are honored to collaborate with some of the biggest innovators in the healthcare industry.
We identify innovative ways to apply virtual reality for impactful experiences. Our team develops for every stage of creation, from ideation to execution. We validate concepts through fast iterative prototyping bolstered by biometrics and collaboration with leading experts. Once a concept is proven out, we bring a user-friendly and accessible product to market. Let us be your development nerds and collaborate to create solutions that help make the world a better place!
FireflyVR’s experience and internal toolset can help expedite research and validating scientific concepts. Our tools can help create a streamlined user experience that allows for controlled testing in a clinic or lab, collecting important performance and biometric data.
We develop to any platform best suited for a project in an ever-changing VR landscape. To further augment an experience, anything from mobile to wearables can be incorporated to create a more effective and holistic experience.
Our team of veteran game developers spans an enormous range of audiences, IPs, technologies, and genres. This vast collection of experience has given us an expertise in user engagement that can be applied to make unforgettable experiences.
FireflyVR can work with a wide variety of trackers, sensors, and input technologies to record important user behaviors and biosignals. Our ability to filter and record data along with a VR experience can help gain great insight in therapies and user behaviors.
Our team has over 100 combined years of software and game industry experience. Our credits include best-selling games from major studios, award-winning indie releases, widely-adopted physics engines, and fundamental engineering algorithms. We have experience with mobile, PC, VR, AR, mixed reality, machine learning, neural networks, and bio-sensors. We are equipped to achieve your goals.

The Sanctuary is a Virtual Reality experience built to prepare a patient for a transformational psychedelic treatment. It incorporates established techniques used by leading experts to provide a safe, engaging, and comfortable experience to prepare for meaningful psychedelic treatment.
Psychedelics as medicine for mental health is a fascinating and quickly emerging field of healthcare. We’re working hard with our team of experts to build and scientifically validate The Sanctuary as psychedelic treatments become readily available. This is just one example of a unique type of product FireflyVR excels in pursuing.
A wellness product can only be as good as the science and knowledge that shapes it. As psychedelics are gaining more momentum in the field of mental health therapies, FireflyVR has expanded the team to include two stand-out experts in the field: Janine Sagert and Glenn Hartelius. Both bring their own unique approach and experience to shape a product that has potential to help heal millions.
