"From Yetis to Pugburgers, we brought the avatar headshots of Stadia to life and imagined their complete character designs. Using only their profiles we had to dive deep and expand their worlds to discover who each of these wild characters are."


"This character-driven adventure embraced simple environments with a bold graphic style, allowing for maximum enjoyment without compromising on important information. The aim was to provide clear instructions that inspire gamers to pick up their controller and start playing."
