Showreel 2021


Selected Projects



Format: Animationseries/Music album


Synopsis: After the invention of cryonic reality (CR) in 2073 the leaders of the world agreed to stop time count and proclaimed the year 2073X. While one is in the CR, the body does no longer age. Users also have access to a virtual utopia that serves as a substitute for the bleak real world. The story begins when a new CR-Virus called "Neoshin" shatters Ayukoas world.

A Juggler's Tale


Format: Game


Synopsis: A Juggler’s Tale is an atmospheric 3D sidescroller set in a medieval puppet theater play. The string puppet Abby flees from her captors into freedom and adventure: a world of beauty and wonder - but also danger! She finds herself in a war-torn, medieval fairytale, surrounded by ravaged, starving citizens and hunted by the relentless cut-throat, Tonda. Who can she trust? Can she avoid the traps and betrayal? Despite dangling from her threads, Abby learns that she can still influence her destiny - if only by winning over the audience.


Presented by: Dominik Schön (Game Design, Gameplay Programming, Level Art), Enzio Probst (Game Design, Programming, Shading), Elias Kremer (Programming, Technical Artist) and Steffen Oberle (Game Design, 3D Art, Storytelling)
