Stories From The Dying City – JONAH

Client: Techland

Design, Animation

Studies show that Dying Light 2 and Techland have
a 99% chance of improving your mood.

We love making things that make people feel better, but what we love even more is creating things that make the hair at the back of your neck stand up and run chills through your body.

This is why we were extremely eager to jump on this project, born out of Techland’s immense Dying Light world, written by Mariusz Pitura, narrated by Corpse Husband, directed and animated by Paweł Świerczyński.

We want to express our sincere thanks to the entire creative team, the hardworking cast and crew, and most of all – Techland and team.

Ghostrunner Hel

Client: 505 Games / One More Level

Main Hero Redesign,
Cover Art, Branding

Sometimes it is good
to be a villain.
Or maybe just, play as one!

The Ghostrunner Game is specially dear to us, so we felt very humbled being chosen to create the Key Art for it’s biggest DLC. Whenever You think of the toughest villains in Ghostrunner, You think about her.

Hel is rage embodied, emanation of OP-ness.
A killing machine that everyone would love to play as.

We felt her power, anger and pain – we wanted to show it the best way we could.

The Witcher: Monster Slayer

Client: Spokko

Your Hunt Begins
(Live Action Trailer)

Roach? Where are You?
Stop playing around and let’s do some hunting!

We are very proud that Spokko chose us to work on The Witcher: Monster Slayer mobile game trailer. Our cinematic director Paweł Swierczynski has a long history with the Witcher Saga so who else could transfer the brand’s spirit into the new Game more accurately? What started off as a traditional film production shoot in pre-production, quickly transformed into a 100% virtual production film shoot including VFX monsters.

It was a strenuous experience since it was a big and complicated undertaking, but you can see the effects and judge for Yourself. We loved the project very much and hope for more exciting collaborations like this.

Go Witcher: Monster Slayer! Let the hunt begin!

Dying Light 2

Client: Techland

Dying 2 Know

We would like to present to you a project that we are hyped about, very much – the first episode of Dying 2 Know.

From Techland, a worldwide AAA game developer and publisher, officially launching their long awaited campaign for Dying Light 2. At the Beast, we created branding designs and animations (2D & 3D) based on materials provided from Techland, which included 2D main titles or the 3D Collector’s Edition presentation made in Unreal Engine.

Special thanks to everyone at Techland for this amazing cooperation and creative imput, it’s always a pleasure to work with you. We would also like to express gratitude to our hard working teams who worked on this project, as well as the fearless director Pawel Fabjanski.

The Beast bites again!

Paradise Lost

Client: All In Games / Polyamorous

Concept, 3D, Slogan,
Logo, Post Production

We came up with the idea
of a Totem triptych to highlight the extraordinary backstory of the game.

Its impressive world, constructed with a vast historic background and varied characters, inspired us to enchant parts of their stories into the totems.

The Family Totem was the most emotional, not surprisingly.
It confronted the main hero with his past and loneliness. Setting
a slight tone of mystery around his parents and religion, and a dim light of hope.

We wanted to combine the energy of nature with the grand rituals nestled in our history created by man. Showing how the emotional world and memory itself can impact human lives.

We are also very proud
to present this unique
Key Art piece.

Dying Light:
Hellraid – The Prisoner

Client: Techland

Cinematic Trailer

Techland approached us to create a dark fantasy-style animation illustrated by hand where the story flows through custom-made spilled ink effects and multiple layers.

The inspiration was Diablo III and certain
aspects of the Ghost of Tsushima game.

The result is a monochromatic tale about Anat’s
evil plans and the characters that try to stand in her fiery way.

A deep narration and custom composed music assist with portraying despair.

Paradise Lost –
Bunker Totem

Client: All In Games / Polyamorous

Concept, 3D, Slogan,
Logo, Post Production

We came up with the idea
of a Totem triptych to highlight the extraordinary backstory of the game.

Its impressive world, constructed with a vast historic background and varied characters, inspired us to enchant parts of their stories into the totems.

The Bunker was to be poetic yet scary. It was supposed
to combine the sheer feeling of loneliness with the history
of the bunker’s creation.

It was supposed to bring hope and mystery. The whole team loved the challenge very much, bringing the atmosphere of the post apocalyptic world to life was a wonderful adventure.

The game’s strikingly deep storyline brought in so many inspirations, that the whole task was just about cutting the content and making the communication more symbolic.

Paradise Lost –
War Totem

Client: All In Games / Polyamorous

Concept, 3D, Slogan,
Logo, Post Production

We came up with the idea
of a Totem triptych to highlight the extraordinary backstory of the game.

Its impressive world, constructed with a vast historic background and varied characters, inspired us to enchant parts of their stories into the totems.

The War totem was supposed to confront the main hero with the visceral drama of war. Not only focusing on the damages, but also on the propaganda, the whole spectrum of life around it.

The task was very demanding and required a lot of balancing, but hopefully we managed to bring in the correct mood and an extra special thrill.

We are very proud
to present this unique
piece of art to You.

Paradise Lost

Client: All In Games / Polyamorous

Cinematic Trailer

From the Creative perspective, adding parts to such a huge, well written story arc is always a challenge.

The need to stay consistent, not to reveal too much,
but also to raise interest is always a difficult balance.

Thankfully, the game’s vibrant world made it easier for us, due to its unique character and impressive historic background. We are very proud of the outcome and hope it is a good invitation to the mysterious world of Paradise Lost.

All of us at The Beast invite you to play.’- says Rafał Nagiecki, The BEAST Creative Director.
