UNEARTHED: Virtual Reality Adventure Game
OUR ROLE: Sound Design and Music

A groundbreaking new mixed reality adventure game, giving players animal superpowers to find the mysterious professor and protect the planet.

Unearthed was created by Factory 42, with the support of Meta Education and in association with the United Nations Environment Programme. Together they aim to inspire players to protect and care for the planet. On Unearthed, Factory 42 worked with University of Oxford Associate Professor of Biodiversity and Sustainability Robert Montgomery to ensure learning outcomes and scientific accuracy were built into the script and gameplay. It also partnered with StoryFutures on user testing and ensuring the product met educational and impact goals. The design for Hazzi, the robot character voiced by Richard Ayoade, was initially conceived by Jake Lunt Davies, the concept artist who was behind the design of the iconic BB-8 droid in the Star Wars sequels trilogy.

1.618 Digital were tasked to sound and design and score the game.
