Sackboy: A Big Adventure is Sackboy’s first stand-alone game and one of 19 launch titles for Sony's long-awaited next-generation Playstation 5 console. Directed by Olly Reid, Axis delivered 23 minutes of seamless in-game cinematics in 4K at 60 fps for both PS4 & PS5.
Axis collaborated with the publishers Sony Interactive Entertainment & developers Sumo Digital, to define the cinematic style and develop the storytelling language. From script to 2D storyboards, to edit; all the way to final real-time cinematic, Axis ensured the clear-cut linking of the narrative to the look and feel of the surrounding gameplay.
Axis’ real-time pipeline was built for maximum flex and adaptability. This allowed syncing with Sumo’s game build and made way for an efficient shared workflow on Sackboy.
