About the Game
KID A MNESIA is not your typical art exhibition. It’s a feverish dreamscape, an ethereal space built from the art, creatures, words, and recordings of Radiohead’s Kid A and Amnesiac albums, which were released over 20 years ago.
The artwork and writing of Stanley Donwood and Thom Yorke, which accompanied the music of Radiohead’s Kid A and Amnesiac, have been brought back to life in a hidden building deep in the forest. The exhibit stretches the very definition of what an exhibition can be.
We collaborated with [namethemachine] x Arbitrarily Good Productions on this project to design environment for this project. We created levels, 3D props, lightning and optimization paths.
The critically acclaimed album “Kid A Mnesia” from Metacritic has achieved universal acclaim with an exceptional score of 97 out of 100. It received positive reviews in the Verge, NME, and other recognized media. The New Yorker included KID A MNESIA: Exhibition to its list of the best video games of 2021.

About the Project
Mythical Games needed some extra support accelerating a port of their game’s network infrastructure for better FPS performance on Unity across platforms. We partnered with a team with the right expertise to seamlessly slot in next to the game’s developer Third Kind Games, and the game was successfully launched in December 2020.
As a result of our long-lasting collaboration the game was released on schedule and received positive feedback from major industry influencers. The scope of our collaboration has also expanded to game-ready character design performed by the artists of Devoted Studios.
Our team is eager to support your game at each stage of development — engineering, art creation, animation, level design, and management.

The first Alpha was wrapped-up in March 2022, following Alpha 2 in July 2022.
About the Project
The game originally started on PC and the development team aimed to create a cross-platform project adding more platforms from there with the possibility of cross-play. Therefore Singularity 6, Inc. came to us looking for a team to perform game porting to Nintendo Switch. The release on other platforms is planned after the PC launch.
Outcomes – WIP
Our expert team will take on the full scope of work — from deep analyzing and studying requirements to integrating the source code. Thus we can ensure a smooth porting of your game to any platform. Besides, Devoted Studios adapts games to Unreal Engine and Unity.

Proletariat Inc. addressed us with the inquiry to bring their hit Spellbreak to Nintendo Switch. After sorting through a few great options, we partnered with an experienced Unreal team on a project that turned into a parallel port as new features were added to the mainline game. This case became a perfect example of how our support provides the ultimate flexibility.
We managed to successfully complete full-cycle porting by the game release on September 3, 2020. We ensured a smooth transition including controls and graphics to make the game feel native to the platform and provide players with an exciting game experience. The game collected positive reviews from players with 71/100 score on Nintendo Switch according to Metacritic. This case became a perfect example of how our support provides the ultimate flexibility.
