Our Goal

Our goal is to create immersive augmented reality experiences across genres and for all ages.

Our Story

Since its founding by Brett Tomberlin and Bryce Katz, Imprezario Entertainment has sought to captivate audiences like never before. Whether a classic tale re-crafted through unique storylines or a new idea on the horizon, we’re inspired to create high quality characters and immersive experiences. 

In 2018, our ‘Night Terrors™’ mobile app redefined cinematic horror content. Utilizing augmented reality, live actors, and a phone’s full functions, the game turned one’s own surroundings into a haunted house. Since then, we’ve focused on combining exceptional technology and storytelling. We’re excited to share several new game releases scheduled for 2021 – 2023, including apps for Ghostbusters Afterlife, Peanuts, and Hello Kitty.

Today, Imprezario’s content innovates mobile gaming and engages audiences. We’re bringing AR to life with the touch of your phone.
