Our Projects


Paper Garden

Paper Garden is our latest VR prototype game. The result of 5 weeks of work, Paper Garden places you in a desolate world overrun by an ancient blight. Your aim is to rejuvenate the land by befriending the native paper planes, and using them to break down the mysterious monoliths responsible for the decay.

Awarded "Famitsu Media Highlight Award" at BitSummit 2017 Japan


A Tiny Escape

A Tiny Escape is a two-player prototype VR game we created in 5 weeks. One player takes the role of a tiny alien who must escape the laboratory of a gigantic robot scientist controlled by player two. Elements of stealth gameplay and tense exploration are brought together with this surreal size contrast to make a truly unusual and memorable VR experience.

協力!Ghost Attackers VR

Developed for GREE in Japan, Ghost Attackers VR is a two-player VR arcade game. Player one is tasked with eradicating ghosts from a haunted manor, and must rely on the assistance of player two who plays with a touch-panel screen. Installed in Tokyo, Ghost Attackers VR has been extremely successful with first-time VR players.


The Modern Zombie Taxi Co.

Developed for Sony PSVR, Modern Zombie Taxi Co. is a fast action VR driving game with rag-doll zombie passengers. It features a bright stylised art aesthetic, many ground-breaking VR features, and a keen sense of humour.
