Horizon Zero Dawn Credits
Guerrilla Games / Sony Computer Entertainment
We were asked by Guerrilla Games to design and implement the end credits for their latest triple A title: 'Horizon Zero Dawn'. This critically acclaimed new Playstation 4 exclusive is developed by the award winning creators of the venerated Killzone franchise.
The game is set in a lush, post apocalyptic world where nature has reclaimed the ruins of the forgotten civilization, pockets of humanity live on in primitive tribes. Their dominion over the new wilderness has been usurped by the machines, fearsome mechanical creatures of unknown origin.
Based on this premise we created a system that carefully renders the credit sequence using Guerrilla Games own game technology. Naivi created the look as well as the tool that was used read the credits (from an excel sheet), create 3D geometry and automatically place the resulting items as assets in the game world. The end result is not a movie, the entire scene (including the credits) is rendered in real time using the new Decima engine, developed by Guerrilla Games in conjunction with Kojima Productions.
We are incredibly honored to have been asked for this job, thank you Guerrilla Games.
