Transforming Music Experience: Office Establishment Marks New Chapter

Transforming Music Experience: Office Establishment Marks New Chapter

11 Jun 2019


MOSHPIT STUDIOS

Moshpit Studios emerged as a collaborative venture between Grammy Award-Winning producer Darryl Swann and VR enthusiast Ans Shabbir, signaling a paradigm shift in music discovery through virtual reality. 'Moshpit', a music-based video game, was conceived by Swann in the late 90s as the game-console market ramped up, and was in talks with many game developers including Sam Houser of Rock Star Games.


Now, Moshpit has matured into a grand concert-gaming platform, blending action-adventure elements with music exploration. Darryl and Ans are united in their mission to disrupt traditional music industry norms, providing artists with an innovative platform to showcase their talents and engage with audiences on a deeper level.


“For two decades, we’ve seen a steady decline of an antiquated music industry business-model, and we are motivated to contribute in growing the model by developing a compelling and innovative opportunity for artists to get discovered by, and connect with fans through the Moshpit platform” said Swann. “As technology has evolved since the late 1990’s, Moshpit has turned into something much bigger than my original vision of a simple RPG music game. It’s now an action-adventure music-discovery platform wrapped up in an entertaining VR experience.”

“All of the dedicated time spent since 2017 has paid off exponentially as we have established both a solid working relationship and friendship. It is essential that partners share a similar work ethic and philosophy,” said Darryl


To turn this vision into reality, Moshpit Studios has established a premier development studio in Lahore, Pakistan. Led by Co-founder & CTO, Ans Shabbir, the Lahore studio represents a milestone in Pakistan's gaming industry.

“Despite having an abundance of tech talent, Pakistan still does not have a AAA game studio. Only games being developed by small studios are either clones for the mobile platform, or outsourced aspects of foreign games which offer foreign companies less expensive development costs. Seeing all this, establishing a AAA quality game studio in Pakistan has been a lifelong dream of mine. The last 2 years of crafting and perfecting every pixel of Moshpit VR and working with Darryl and the partners has made this a passion of mine. Establishing Moshpit Studios in Lahore is a dream that has manifested through passion and focused hard work.” – Ans Shabbir.
