We’re pleased to welcome the leading Liverpool studio, Firesprite, to Grads In Games for the 2018/19 season!
Formed in 2012, Firesprite’s studio heritage can actually be traced back decades to the early days of the UK games industry, primarily through SCE Liverpool Studio (the studio behind Wipeout) & even deeper with Psygnosis (publisher of Lemmings & many other classic games). Though the accolades of the past are many , Firesprite are a distinctly forward-looking studio that embraces new technology and approaches, shown through their recent Playstation projects & clearly by their current game, The Persistence.
The Persistence is a “brutal VR sci-fi-stealth, horror, roguelike” developed exclusively for PSVR. It brings a visually and technically impressive game to the platform, with a great job at integrating with other devices & allowing friends ‘help’ you along the way. Firesprite wanted to achieve a full game experience with The Persistence, and brought in several innovative aspects created in their previous games, with elements learned from The Playroom, Run Sackboy! Run! and Nightfall coming together to shape their new VR world.
Thank you to Firesprite for their support this year!
