BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe will be collaborating with acclaimed animation house Aardman and French game developer DigixArt to created 11-11: Memories Retold — a story-driven narrative adventure set during World War I to be produced in a unique, painted style, which aims to deliver an engaging, emotional entertainment experience unlike anything that has come before. The key partners are assembling a roster of top talent across gaming, animation, music and narration to bring the project to life.
“Engaging audiences with compelling stories through animation is at the heart of what we do at Aardman. With this project we want to produce an emotionally rich experience with a distinctive visual identity that reflects the sentiment of this narrative,” said David Sproxton, Co-Founder & Executive Chairman of Aardman. “11-11: Memories Retold is truly an exciting step for us as it marks the first time that Aardman has collaborated on a game of this scale and we’re delighted to see this come to life.”
“11:11: Memories Retold is a very special game at many levels. From the painted style to the emotional journey we create for the player to revive their heritage, we are pushing the boundaries of what a game can be and hope it will leave a mark on you,” sad Yoan Fanise, Game Director, DigixArt.”
Hervé Hoerdt, VP of Marketing & Digital at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe commented: “We are passionate to work with incredible talents coming from different backgrounds. Nurturing the unique collaboration of Aardman Studios and DigixArt and helping them achieve their vision of what emotions a videogame can deliver is a very exciting endeavour for us.”
