    Hark fellow denizens of this rock hurtling through space and time, we’re on a mission - building new worlds to explore. Until space travel affords us the luxury of visiting undiscovered planets or the scientists at CERN get their act together and make inter-dimensional travel the same as going to the corner store and buying a fizzy cola - we have taken on the mantel of constructing digital worlds that fuze with our own. We’re working in a constant state of flux, at the crossroads where new technology, virtual world building and storytelling meet. Creativity and design gets mashed up with frontier technology to create unparalleled real-time and interactive worlds, where we endeavor to raise the bar each step we take into the great wide open. Crazy-fun? You betcha. Challenging? We wouldn’t be doing it otherwise - it’s what drives us further into the unknown realm of collaborative, extremely creative and highly technical work with endless possibility.
