Night Forest was a proof of concept game design for Stadia’s Stream Connect announcement at GDC 2019. Massive Black was responsible for the visual development, modeling, animation, and integration of an ethereal world focused on cooperative gameplay and puzzle solving. Our goal was to highlight the high performance of Stadia’s multiplayer streaming capabilities.
In conjunction with Night Forest, Massive Black also helped design the streaming command center. This center allowed observers to view multiple simultaneous streams and interact in real time with the players in-game.
