It’s a well-known fact that over the past few years, Malaysian animation studios have been working together with international companies to create the breathtaking visuals and effects seen in award-winning video games and movies. One such veteran in the industry is Lemon Sky Studios, a studio that has worked on games such as Warcraft 3: Reforged, Gears of War 5, Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers, and Mortal Kombat 11.
Recently, Lemon Sky Studios has made it known that they were involved in three upcoming launch titles for the PlayStation 5: Demon’s Souls, Spider-Man Remastered, and Spider-Man Miles Morales. If you’ve seen the visuals for the mentioned titles, you’ll know it was no small feat developing these games for the next-generation console. For the Demon’s Souls, Lemon Sky Studios had a hand in the animation for the enemy monsters, while in the Spider-Man games, they worked on the 3D modelling for some of the game’s assets.
“It has been a great pleasure for us to work with Insomniac Games. From our time spent working on the original Marvel’s Spider-Man for PS4, to working on the new Spider-Man games for the next console generation – the opportunity to contribute to these great titles means a lot to us and we’re proud to have been able to ” Eng Tzy Ling – Lemon Sky Studios, Studio Manager.
While Malaysians still have got a little under a month to go before they get their hands on a PlayStation 5, and a little while more before they get to the end credits of the aforementioned games, at least it’s something we can look forward to and be proud of! Kudos to Lemon Sky Studios, hopefully we’ll see even more Malaysian talent in other high-profile projects in the future.
