We’re delighted to announce the CGHero collaboration with White Paper Games on their latest release.
Last year, White Paper Games released Conway: Disappearance at Dahlia View, a beautifully made game that our Heroes worked on. We're here to chat to some of those who worked on it.
Created over several weeks of work, this observational-detective thriller is a plot driven story game with a captivatingly luring setting. Set in a dark and troublesome 1950s English town, we were honoured to work with Pete Bottomley’s team, based here in our local Manchester, with creating environments and props for the setting. The game released on November 2nd, 2021, after several months of work and Here's what Pete had to say:
The team at CGHero worked to White Paper Games’ industry standard to create a range of props for the game, which were a vast contribution to the visual storytelling that has proven essential to Conway’s dark and brooding style. Stylisation proved an important factor in contributing to the feel and atmosphere of the game - and if we do say so ourselves, we think our Heroes smashed it!
Our artists specifically worked on props for several rooms, including the pub, the detective’s room, and the apartment, using trim sheets and working to polygon limits to best optimise the scene for the best performance possible. We were especially excited to work with a team local to us; the team at White Paper are based just a few miles away from us here in Manchester. Building relationships and collaborating with studios lets us share exciting opportunities with our Heroes, whilst making an impact in the CG Industry.
Reviews on Steam have praised CONWAY: Disappearance at Dahlia View’s graphics, visual storytelling, plot driven narrative and gameplay. Many have noted how the graphic novel-style art has made the game feel atmospheric and engaging - a huge shout out to all the artists who collaborated to create this amazing game.
