We had the pleasure of working with Davevillz on the awesome Pavlov VR game. While it is still in early access, in is an insanely fun game to play and a great experience overall.
Our team took care of Art Direction, Level Design, all of the Textures, Props, Materials and Lighting. We also did optimizations for smooth running on a variety of VR HMD’s, and some VFX.
