Soulstice Cinematics, Reply Game Studios

Videogames, 2022

Maga Animation explored its passion for the anime world with this incredible collaboration with Reply Game Studios on their action slasher “Soulstice”.

The team of our studio joined forces with Reply Game Studios to create the cinematics from start to finish on their breathtaking latest release, the dark fantasy-style action RPG Soulstice. We worked side by side with Reply's creative directors to develop the visual storytelling around the cinematics, over 80 minutes, starting from storyboarding to crafting the animation and giving the images their finishing touch through CG look dev, VFX, and lighting. It was a great challenge and an amazing opportunity for our team to experiment with new aesthetics on the art side and master the real-time engine Unreal on the tech side. 

This hack-and-slash game was fully developed in Italy and was proudly released on the 20th of September 2022. It was a great challenge working with such a professional team as Reply Game Studios on a very ambitious project like Soulstice! Thank you to all the team involved in the production. © 2021 Forge Reply s.r.l. Soulstice and all signs included are trademarks of Forge Reply s.r.l. All rights reserved. Published by Modus Games™.
