Pop round It’s Nice That’s house on a Sunday afternoon and you’re likely to catch us stuck to the sofa while Katamari Damacay or Euro Truck Simulator 2: Beyond the Baltic Sea flickers across the telly. For that reason, we were intrigued when we discovered that Red Bull Media House has been working on a six-part series that takes viewers behind the scenes at some of the most innovative and inventive video game development studios around.
The series, titled Levels launches today (21 January) and offers an intriguing insight into how independent studios are taking on the big-money behemoths at their own game, producing some of the most interesting games on the market today.
The titles featured in this first series of Levels include Star Citizen (the most crowd-funded game of all time), a new game developed by the man responsible for beloved adventure franchise Assassins Creed and Cuphead (a hand-drawn animated game developed by a pair of brothers).
