Overkill’s The Walking Dead: Grant

You’ve met Aidan and Maya! And now it’s time for our third character trailer for Starbreeze’s upcoming game “Overkill’s The Walking Dead”. This time we meet Grant: A determined man with true grit. Set in a grim and dire situation Grant finds refuge in the one and only abandon car in the middle of nowhere. A full CG monologue where he has time to ponder about is past.

The trailer has won several awards, including Best Game Cinematic at Animago Awards,  Silver in the Animation category at Epica Awards, Bronze at Eurobest (Film Craft/Animation) and Gold in the Craft category at “Guldägget” – Sweden’s most prestigious Advertising Award – together with our friends at Red Pipe Studios.

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
