eDome - World in Conflict - New York trailer Massive Entertainment Vivendi RTS PC strategy war game World in Conflict asks the terrifying question, what if the Cold War didn't end? The award-winning game represents the next-generation of strategy titles, pitting Cold War-era superpowers against one another with completely destructible 3D battlefields and blistering visuals using DX10 technology. World in Conflict features an innovative gameplay mechanism that removes traditional resource-gathering and base-building in favor of non-stop combat, tactical decisions and FPS-like intense action. The game also features a deep single-player campaign that showcases Hollywood-quality storytelling of the Cold War gone hot. Features in World in Conflict include: ⢠Action-Focused Gameplay: World in Conflict focuses on tactical combat to create a game that is fast and hard-hitting -- much like an FPS -- by removing traditional base-building and resource gathering in favor of instant warfare and by doing so, creating a new category of PC games: Action-Strategy ⢠Dramatic Single-Player Campaign: World in Conflict's single player mode will offer a deep and emotional storyline created by renowned author and cold war authority, Larry Bond; players will strap on the combat boots of a young field commander featuring Hollywood voice-over talent and a thrilling personal journey through World War III ⢠Accessibility: World in Conflict's FPS-like control <b>...</b>

For Vivendi we collaborated in making a conversion of an advertisement for Mc Donald's. This involved our transforming the well-known Crash Bandicoot and Coco characters into 3D and then animating them. The figures were then rendered with the assistance of an HDRI lighting model, which had to be matched to the available environmental lighting of a real-time film recording and then lastly everything was reworked in 2D.

Half Life 2 1984 Trailer [HD] Developer: Valve Software Release: 5/26/2010 Genre: FPS Platform: PC/MAC Publisher: Vivendi Games Website: Pick up the crowbar of research scientist Gordon Freeman, and find yourself on an alien-infested Earth being picked to the bone, its resources depleted, its populace dwindling. You must rescue the world from the wrong you unleashed back at Black Mesa. The original Half-Life sent a shock through the game industry with its combination of pounding action and continuous, immersive storytelling. Valve's debut title won more than 50 Game of the Year awards, was named "Best Game Ever" by PC Gamer, and launched a franchise which has since sold over 11 million units worldwide. By taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original Half-Life and adding startling new realism and responsiveness, Half-Life 2 opens the door to a world where the players presence affects everything around him or her, from the physical environment to the behaviors and even the emotions of both friends and enemies.
