Freestyle Create Open for Fusion Fall
An unstoppable force has travelled the Galaxy for millennia, consuming countless planets and civilisations. It’s next target is Earth – and you are the last line of defence! Freestyle Collective recently created a dramatic opening sequence for a new Cartoon Network online game. Fusion Fall is Cartoon Network’s first massive multiplayer online game. From futuristic skyscrapers to mystical ruins, enter an enormous, action-packed universe unlike anything you’ve seen. Mix it up with stars of Cartoon Network like Ben 10, and Billy and Mandy – but expect a surprise when you do!
The Freestyle Collective used a combination of Photoshop, Illustrator, Maya and Z Brush to create the Fusion Fall game open. The work was finished in Flame by Freestyle Collective sister visual effects company, Guava.
This open is Freestyle’s most artistically and technically complex work to date, and plunges the player directly into the centre of an epic battle between good and evil. A handheld-camera-feel gives the open drama, immediacy and a sweeping finish that introduces many of the game’s main characters.
