Our Hidden Objects Game
Design & Development Services
Our team knows a lot about creating a mysterious atmosphere of incessant search for something important. We have a lot of experience in creating HOG environments and items, so we can definitely help you make your game unique.
Full Cycle Environment Design
If you are just starting to develop a game, then we are ready to create any environment design for you from scratch. Cluttered basements, graceful halls, picturesque streets and holds of ships: our artists can easily create the atmosphere you need and immerse the player in it. Careful drawing of the smallest details makes each location special and unforgettable.
2D/3D Assets Creation
Assets are the main point of the hidden object game, so we approach their creation as creatively as possible. Each of them is carefully worked out so that its appearance is absolutely unique and at the same time fits perfectly into the environment. That is why our hidden object game design always looks very harmonious: we create organic locations that do not raise doubts about their authenticity.
Immerse the player in the atmosphere of the environment, but at the same time do not overload it with unnecessary movements: our animators know how to do this. Dust particles, rays of the sun falling through curtains, movement of leaves, glow of lamps, a bird flying by and light swaying of objects will revive the location, give it breath and provide the player with an exciting gaming experience.
