2021 becomes a landmark year in terms of increasing the number of AAA projects for large customers. One of them is the photorealistic VR simulation Birdly Insects. This project becomes a Gold Winner in the NYX Game Awards international competition in the Game Design/Creature Design category.

The massive work on the world’s first blockchain-based AAA FPS game Undead Blocks also becomes an interesting challenge: our 3D character, weapon, and environment modeling experts team up with game and sound designers, as well as technical artists, to create an authentic post-apocalyptic setting and atmospheric musical design.

Two new areas of expertise appear:

  • Game porting
  • Game QA testing
  • Enterprise gamification

 

Despite the crisis period and the 2020 pandemic, the gaming industry remains on the rise. Flexible adaptation to the new conditions of remote work allows reducing the employee attrition rate by up to 4%.

The company continues to actively engage in AAA projects, headlined by the legendary game of the Star Wars franchise from Lucasfilm. Kevuru Games wins the tender and begins work on the creation of AAA photorealistic 3D characters for Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge. The team is delighted to see the company name and artist names in the credits of the game played by millions of players around the world.

The successful growth of the AAA level of the company’s services allowed Kevuru to enter a new stage of cooperation with the world’s top studios on iconic projects.

This year, the company is actively developing AAA expertise in the following areas:

  • 3D environments: modular environments, organic environments, and props.
  • 3D weapons for first and third person games.
  • 3D photorealistic characters: people, animals, and individual elements (clothes, hair, etc.).

Considering the greatest prospects of the Unreal engine in the field of creating the most modern AAA games, the Unreal direction appears and is actively developing in the company.

Particular attention is also paid to 2D, in particular, art and animation. The 2D team is actively working on such projects as Claire Hart (Pogo), Big Farm (Goodgame Studios), Monster Legends (Socialpoint), Taboo Stories (Nanobit), and more.

The 2017-2018 period passes under the Fortnite banner: the concepts created by our team contribute to the significant advancement of the company in the international arena, as well as the overall strengthening of 2D and concept art expertise. Throughout the entire period of cooperation, about 120 unique-looking concepts of skins for various thematic areas are created.

The Unity development department is also being formed: the company is actively recruiting experienced Unity specialists to form the leadership foundation of the team and cover the entire pipeline of the full development cycle to provide relevant services to customers. Initially, the focus is on mobile and PC games, with plans to work with consoles as well.

The number of 2D works in the portfolio is growing rapidly. The first large projects for the creation of 3D art appear, as well as detailed reviews from customers who are satisfied with the high quality of the implemented projects.

The team already has extensive experience and deep understanding of the specifics of creating art for hidden object games, as well as for slot and casual projects. Individual approach allows us to adapt to artistic vision and creative direction and embody any idea, carefully working it out at every stage.

With the expansion of the portfolio, the team also expands: strong specialists with extensive expertise and understanding the specifics of the gaming industry come to the company.

The number of projects from the first large clients has exceeded 20. 

Due to the great demand, the company is looking for more and more narrow-profile specialists who are able to manage projects of various genres and types.

Art departments dedicated to specific game genres are formed.

There is a need for further development of the 3D direction due to the increase in the number of orders for 3D art and animation.

A full range of customized 3D art services, from 3D concept development to complex 3D art projects, allow the creation of supreme-quality art that interprets the client’s thoughts. And the company offers to hire 3D designers from our team for projects of any complexity.

The company is actively developing its own games and expanding the staff of 2D art and animation specialists. At the same time, great prospects for game outsourcing encourage the development of this area: the team forms a line of available services, draws up a portfolio, and receives first orders from customers.

The company’s portfolio already includes 5 of its own games, and the staff includes over 10 employees.

At the beginning of its journey, the company is engaged in custom development of mobile games and resource enhancement of the mobile direction.

After the first contract with EA, the main focus shifts to game art and animation, mostly 2D stylized. The company has a clear vision of where to go, what directions to develop and what customers need.

Despite the fact that the company is young, and there are many competitors on the market, the team manages to win the trust of its first customers. According to the CEO, the main reason for this is the professionals who live and breathe art, design and exciting games. Our mission is to create projects that will be best remembered by players.

What Our Employees Say about Us

Maksym Haydar
3D character artist

I am satisfied working with a strong and friendly team. Here everyone cares about quality, is focused on results and growth, and most importantly – helps each other. I like that tasks are distributed among artists in accordance with the direction in which they are strong and want to develop further. An individual approach to each employee of a large company is the key to joint progress. During my work in the studio, our 3D AAA department has grown several times, so if there is a desire – welcome to Kevuru!

Dariia Haran
Project manager

Coming to the company with no experience, I was met with incredible support and willingness to help. And this applies not only to the team of PMs, but also to leads, HRs, CEO and artists, who were always happy to suggest what and how best to do, who is better to contact for answers. Everyone is happy to help you grow and develop. This atmosphere in the team attracts and makes you fall in love, and nowhere else you will find the ease and warmth with which new people are accepted into the company.
