I’m glad that we are being sent more motion work from computer games now – this is a huge area and the quality levels are very high…
This time round Territory have sent us a collection of cinematics for Sony Computer Entertainment & Guerrilla Cambridge’s fifth addition to the Killzone franchise – Killzone: Mercenary. It turns out that this game is only available on the latest Sony handheld device – the Vita – so everything was designed for the 5” OLED display.

On Monday night dotmogo attended the opening night of the Bristol Proms, for an innovative but classical performance. 18-year-old pianist Jan Lisiecki played Chopin’s Etudes to the Bristol Old Vic theatre, a venue steeped in history.

I asked him to tell me how he sees their company and he said a “user interface design company who also creates its own intellectual property (IP).” I’m hearing more and more about creative companies who are creating their own IP for a content hungry world, so I asked him what they had been up to..
Electronics companies do not like to mention the external agencies that they outsource a lot of their interface design work to – so I could not much info about that. However, the exciting bit, which they can talk about, is the 14 mobile apps they have created, which you can find on iOS and Android app stores – which is the core of their own IP.
