Dr. Crumb’s School for Disobedient Pets originates from the innovative minds of Adventure Lab’s CEO/Co-Founder, Maxwell Planck and COO/Co-Founder Kimberly Adams.

Obviously they are backed by an incredible pool of skilled people as well as jointly, Adventure Lab has an outstanding group return to.
During a meeting with VRScout, Planck discussed Adventure Lab, stating,” I don’t check out VR as narration, where I rest you down as well as claim here is a hero’s journey yet you do not play much of a duty,”Planck adds, “I consider it as memory production, where you actually have something to do together.”It was throughout this time that Planck, who was working with Adams at Facebook, was getting involved in retreat spaces, immersive cinema, and also parlor games. He questioned how one might you bring every one of those experiences right into Virtual Reality.
It was that idea that triggered the idea of Adventure Lab. Both then left Facebook to begin their very own company. This remained in 2019, right before the Oculus Quest launched.
