The Outer Worlds

“The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos” is a narrative expansion to the award-winning RPG from Obisidian Entertainment and Private Division. The plot revolves around the murder of the famous Halcyon Helen and how to find the killer when everyone is suspected.

We were delighted to produce this in-game cinematic, a wonderful opportunity to play with a classic 50s film-noir visual style – and create a great real-time CG character in the process.

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
