Starbreeze AB: Starbreeze to premiere its cinematic VR-experience "Cockatoo Spritz" at Cannes May 11-20

Starbreeze AB, an independent creator, publisher and distributor of high
quality entertainment products today announced its first internally produced
cinematic Virtual Reality (VR) experience titled "Cockatoo Spritz" directed
by Stephane Barbato.

Starbreeze first VR-project was produced to explore the interactive game space
in the Overkill's the Walking Dead VR-experience which premiered at E3 2015
where the company also launched its 210-degree field of view StarVR head
mounted display. Now, the "Cockatoo Spritz" dives into the film world and
presents the new medium from a cinematic perspective.

"We felt the need to creatively push the movie industry into the VR space to
fully realize the potential in the new medium, and at the same time showcase
the strength of StarVR's 210 field of view. We early decided to shoot in
France. There is an amazing strong technical and creative environment here,
so it really made sense to base the production here." said Michael Hjorth,
Starbreeze Chairman who executive produced the experience together with
Emmanuel Marquez, Starbreeze CTO. "In discussions with Stephane Barbato, the
director we decided to get inspiration from the early French pioneers, like
the Lumiere brothers, and the movies of Lubistch and Billy Wilder.

"Cockatoo Spritz tells the story of the effervescence. 'Spritz' is the spirit
of the show, the funny in the air, the sparkling in the eyes. Looks around
you 'Spritz' is everywhere." said Stephane Barbato about the experience.

Starting on Wednesday May 11th Starbreeze will showcase the new VR-experience
Cockatoo Spritz and Overkill's The Walking Dead VR-Experience at the Majestic
Hotel at the heart of Cannes. On Sunday May 15th an event will be arranged to
further exclusively preview the experience for select invitees.
