Conan Unconquered

Conan the Barbarian is back in a brand new game from Funcom – Conan Unconquered – a fast paced strategy game where players face wave after wave of enemies in ever-increasing numbers and difficulty.

In the Cinematic Announcement Trailer, we wanted to convey that feeling of epic greatness and created our biggest digital army yet – with no less than 28.000 soldiers.

Watch the Behind The Scenes Reel below to see how we did it – or listen to episode #32 of our podcast Yellow Brick Road where we discuss the production.

We don’t make dreams come true.

We make them real. And if you like what you’ve seen us do for others, imagine what we could do for you. Because what we’ve done is only the starting point. We are constantly reinventing our expertise and using it in previously unknown ways, blurring the edges between what’s real and what’s possible. All you have to do is watch, because we’re not just aiming for the rainbow – we want to go beyond. Contact us
