Resonair

About Us

Humans resonate at a fundamental level and have a natural desire to want to share with others. Senses also resonate and evoke synesthetic expressions and experiences. Taking inspiration from those thoughts in our name Resonair, we are committed to creative work that is universal and unrestricted by any categories, genres, culture or race. Our artists, musicians, storytellers, engineers, producers and directors -- each a creator in its own field make this happen.

Produced by Enhance, Resonair played a key role in the 2016 release of Rez Infinite -- a title that won high praise from fans and critics alike, as well as the first-ever Best VR Game title at The Game Awards that same year. Earning over 40 industry nominations including the BAFTA Games Awards (Audio Achievement category), the VR-compatible game maintains its position as the one of the highest rated titles. Rez Infinite is available on multiple platforms including PlayStation 4/PlayStation VR, PC (Steam), HTC VIVE, Oculus and Daydream.
