World One will be Calgary's dedicated gamer hub, catering to all forms of gamer. Whether it be a new gamer, hardcore fan, or aspiring game developer, we want to provide you with various forms of digital and video entertainment that the 18+ can come and experience like no where else.
We are aiming for a space that has all the social fun of an arcade with the bonus option to have a specialty drink/snack at the same time. The arcade will be a modern take on the "old-school" spaces of the past... So it's not a retro arcade at all. Its about time to take what was and bring it back with a twist (a fusion of sorts). We aim to create a mix of the old-school arcade, with new "home" entertainment (at a higher level of awesome) with a dash of japanese arcades. World One's game zone will be serving as the backbone of the venue with the muscle and support of a specialized bar; serving game themed drinks and casual food.
We at World One have a focus and drive to create a friendly and relaxing social atmosphere, that all forms of gamers (casual to hard-core) can come and meet like-minded people.
Maybe you are developing a new game/project that you need a space to work in; we support devs, makers and artists. Perhaps your looking for a venue to meet your buddies to play some games (Smash Bros or Street fighter anyone?). We hope to offer a bit of everything that YYC gamers are looking for.
On the business side of things, maybe your company is looking for a space to hold corporate events, launch parties or even the good old birthday party. World one offers a competitive advantage over similar entertainment venues with a liquor licence, as we will be streamlining local and inhouse events in synch with the growth of the expanding gamer market in Alberta and the new E-sports (Competitive electronic gaming that is seen as a sport) genre expanding within Canada.
We plan to host various dedicated events and specials both on location and online to support our local gaming communities and independent game development/arts related projects.
We ask that you please follow us online and/or subscribe now for upcoming details about this project and future events. Your support is what will make World One a reality. Thank you.
Cheers All, May Gamers Unite!
