At Lucid Sight, our goal is to develop innovative games and apps using emerging technologies. We’ve utilized the blockchain, Augmented Reality, and Virtual Reality in tandem with our game development, and we’ve also created monetization and marketing platforms for some of the most innovative brands in tech, entertainment, and consumer packaged goods.
Lucid Sight has released 10 first-party games and apps, and we’re currently focused on blockchain-based games and applications. You can see some of what we've done below or check out our games section for a taste of our work in VR.
Lucid Sight was formed in 2015 by Randy Saaf, Octavio Herrera, and Fazri Zubair. Randy and Octavio had early success in the mobile gaming industry as co-founders of Jirbo, an Apple App Store launch partner that secured 14 of the first 100 free games on the platform. Jirbo eventually transformed into AdColony, which sold to Opera Media Works for $350 million. Randy and Octavio then teamed up with our CTO and Studio Head, Fazri Zubair. Fazri's knowledge of the gaming space and his experience running a dev studio made him an easy choice to lead our development team, and we haven't looked back.
Randy, Octavio, and Fazri built the rest of Lucid Sight from the ground up with game industry veterans hailing from EA, Crystal Dynamics, and DreamWorks, and with experience in all aspects of game development spanning console, mobile, PC, and web. From the very beginning, the Lucid Sight vision has focused on exploring emerging technologies, whether it be mobile apps, AR, VR, and most recently, blockchain gaming.

This award was a tough one to judge because there were so many great candidates. But, we came to a decision, and there were a few that stood out, and 1 in particular stood above them all.
Major League Baseball (MLB) has taken a step into the blockchain and crypto world by launching its own Ethereum-based game, “MLB Crypto,” in partnership with blockchain dApp developer Lucid Sight
We live in exciting times to be a crypto fan and user, and this is especially true if you are a gamer and a fan of baseball as news is breaking of an MLB crypto baseball game being launched on blockchain.
Baseball collectibles like cards and bobbleheads are being revamped for the 21st century — on the blockchain. Major League Baseball has announced that it is launching a crypto-based game that runs on the ethereum blockchain later this summer.
Lucid Sight is the rare ad software-maker that actually has its own apps. In start-up parlance, Lucid Sight can engage in dogfooding — making use of its own technology — and Herrera says that should make their offering appealing to rivals.
Even with an opt-out after 10 seconds, the company told me that over 20% of users chose to watch the entirety of a 4-minute sponsored ad based around the Lions Gate film The Divergent Series: Allegiant within their game PolyRunner VR.
The trading output was sold for 83.1 ETH (almost $60,000), which Lucid Sight reckons is the highest price paid for a blockchain game item other than the prices paid within CryptoKitties during the late 2017 cryptocurrency bull market.
Major League Baseball digital collectibles are coming to the Ethereum blockchain. Lucid Sight, a blockchain gaming company, is launching MLB Crypto Baseball, through a licensing deal with MLB.
We talked a long time ago about bitcoin and whether we should accept it as payment for MLB.tv and some of our other products, and we opted not to...We’re in the business of delivering baseball to fans. So this game is a more interesting intersection of blockchain technology and what we do.
Lucid Sight co-founder Octavio Herrera said the round reinforces the company’s decision to integrate blockchain technology with gaming to create authentic digital scarcity. To that end, the round included investments from The Galaxy EOS VC Fund and Digital Currency Group, along with existing shareholders Major League Baseball and AppOnboard Founder, Jonathan Zweig, among others.
