In November of 2017 we traveled to Amsterdam to spend two days with the studio responsible for one of Sony's longest running franchises; Killzone.

But we weren't there to talk to them about their famed space-Nazi series. We were there to discuss the creation of their new franchise; Horizon. A game that surprised the gaming world with it's fierce lead character, incredible world and cerebral combat. 

In our first full-length documentary project we analyze how a studio trained at making linear first-person-shooters pivoted to focus the team on an entirely new genre of game.
