Until Dawn is amazing… let’s just get that out there first. It has taken the interactive genre to a whole new level. We have dabbled lightly with interactive narratives with the Our World War interactive drama for the BBC. However this is just on a different level… It has become a console defining piece of work for horror and carved out a whole new genre.
They have taken everything we all love and scares the “bejaysus” out of us and wrapped it up in one of the slickest pieces of game creation to date.
It has had countless reviews of 10/10 and you can see why; the cutting edge technology in the captured performances and presentation, the stunning in game art, not to mention the slick and very clever tech behind all the multi branched story… it’s truly a masterpiece of storytelling.
As Halloween is approaching, the Developer Supermassive Games and Publisher SCEE XDEV/SONY wanted to do something a bit special for the masses of passionate fans.
The successful and critically acclaimed game has a huge fan following and so they asked Mi to create a PS4 dynamic theme they could give away as a Halloween present. We had recently produced a few PS4 dynamic themes (as yet unannounced), as well as having a couple in development for the US store of our own designs, such as Up and Under!
Technically you only have a very small memory budget for a PS4 dynamic theme so they don’t affect the super slick operation of the menu. You really do have to pick your battles and mix new with some really old game development techniques. All worth it though when you see the end result downloaded on your console!
We’re really proud to do such a small piece of work for these guys as we are massive… supermassive fans, of the game Until Dawn and their work in general :-)… and no they won’t even tell us if there is a sequel on the cards 🙂
