After 18 years of working on developing curriculum for games development courses and competitions around the world and putting tonnes of students into the videogames, film and television production industries, we are designing a number of video games. Working with TEDx since 2015, we've been developing Virtual Reality experiences that explore the possibilities with the tech and software available.
We've offered consultancy on VR for psychology, construction, architecture and charities.
Our current videogame "Crushed" explores claustrophobia.
