SCHENECTADY — Video game developer Catapult Games will hold a launch party at its downtown space later this month for its new product, a virtual reality climbing game called “Don’t Look Down.”

Catapult this week announced that it was moving into Urban Co-Works, a co-working space at 433 State St. that’s home to 28 other businesses.

Catapult is part of a growing game and esports business community in the Capital Region. Gaming Insomniacs, another esports firm, also is a tenant at Urban Co-Works.

It is the first office space retained by Catapult, which employs four full-time developers. “We chose Urban Co-Works as our office in part because of the opportunity to work side-by-side with others who are in the gaming industry,” said Dane Jennings, president of Catapult Games. “Urban Co-Works is a creative environment to work in and we are excited about getting to know other members here.”

“Don’t Look Down” is a fully immersive VR game that has players climbing and flinging through four distinct settings while battling robots. The launch party is at Urban Co-Works at 5:30 p.m. April 18. Registration is free here.
