The punk rock XBox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive needed an equally rockin’ end credit sequence. The posters were created digitally, using modified graffiti and street art graphics from the game, as well as original photography that the game’s illustrators turned into line drawings to match the game’s art style. They were then printed and mounted onto wooden construction site boards using wheat paste and staple guns and shot in 4k. See a making of feature on KOTAKU!

Knight Legends is a freemium model, social-mobile card battle game. This trailer was produced for the game's unveiling at mobile publishing giant GREE's booth at the Tokyo Game Show, and as part of their online marketing strategy.
We delivered the international as well as Japanese versions of the trailer, in close coordination with the producers at gumi, the games' developer in Japan.

Nightjar developed the concept from the ground up, interplaying the fantasy kingdom of knights-in-armor with the modern and techy mobile gaming worlds, while always highlighting the central theme of the game - the trading cards themselves.

By casting social media star LeeAnna Vamp (over 1M combined followers) in the role of the sword swinging heroine, the trailer made it’s way off the show floor and into phones far and wide.
