Endling - Extinction is Forever

What service was provided as part of the project?

Game Development, Animation & Multimedia

Describe your project in brief

UI animation for Endling - Extinction is Forever. Creation of functional UMG Widgets and blueprints built in Unreal Engine 4 ready to be implemented by Herobeat Studios.

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

Communication with Brave Zebra was effective and their responsiveness was commendable. They demonstrated a clear understanding of our creative vision and were receptive to feedback. This collaborative spirit was instrumental in bringing the project to fruition.

What was it about the company that you didn't like which they should do better?

We acknowledge that there is an opportunity for enhancing the functionality of the UI elements to match their visual appeal. During the project, we encountered certain usability challenges. However, we only provided limited access to the source code and that probably made it difficult to conduct a thorough quality assurance assessment on the integration from Brave Zebra's side.
