Gungrave G.O.R.E will have in-game cinematics produced by Digic Pictures, whose past works include game cinematics for Call of Duty: WWII, Destiny 2, Assassin’s Creed Origins, The Last Guardian, and more.
Watch a video message from Digic Pictures founder and managing director Alex S. Rabb below.
Hi, everyone. I’m very pleased to meet you all at Tokyo Game Show. My name is Alex S. Rabb, and I’m the founder and managing director of Digic Pictures.
Back in the old days I was a gamer myself, but nowadays I can’t compete with you guys at all. We got very excited when we got in touch with Iggymob about seven months ago earlier this year, because we are always looking for challenging new opportunities. We are honored to be working with Iggymob on the Gungrave G.O.R.E. project and to make this game real big.
Digic Pictures is located in the heart of Europe in Hungary. Our studio is in the so-called mini Silicon Valley, Budapest next to the beautiful river Danube. My aim when I established Digic about 16 years ago was to create films that are only limited by the imagination of its creator. This is what we call digital magic, and this is what our name Digic is coming from.
At the moment we have more than 300 people in our studio—a talented team of 3D artists, directors, production managers, motion capture and 3D photo scan specialists, stuntmen, and so on. They are the very reason they can bring universes and characters alive, and create amazing virtual worlds. At the beginning, we started with trailers, teasers, promotions for games, and then we got involved with in-game cutscenes, and right now we are working on short movies as well. But creating movies for games stays always in the bottom of our hearts.
Digic has created more than a hundred movies up to now, including projects for clients such as Sony, Square Enix, Microsoft, Ubisoft, Activision, Riot Games, just to name a few. It is our aim to create short movies, not just trailers for the games. We believe that telling stories is the key. Perfect visuals are the basics, but that is not enough. A good cinematic relies on a captivating story just exactly as a good feature film. We want you to feel that you are part of the action, the fight.
Iggymob and Gungrave G.O.R.E., they’ve got a new game, a new type of collaboration, and a new partner. It is super exciting for us to be involved from a very early development phase of the game. Starting with the trailer, we will also develop opening and ending scenes, and maybe a few surprises. To give you a little sneak peek of what you can expect, the story of the game is very emotional, so we will enjoy showcasing all this drama through our cinematics.
This game will be one of the most stylish shooters, packed with “Full Break” gun action and “Transform” gun kata that no one has ever seen before in a game. It is a great chance for Digic to compose beautiful-executed scenes matching all the excitement.
Gungrave G.O.R.E. is the next stage of a successful franchise, and Digic is proud to join Iggymob on this journey. With other prominent partners, we can establish the basis of a long term relationship.
Gungrave G.O.R.E. is due out for PlayStation 4 in winter 2019 in Japan.
