Behind the scenes documentary of the making of Resilient Reef (plus the game)
$25.00

Making a game that stays true to the ecosystem dynamics of a complex underwater environment isn't always the most obvious thing to do, especially not when it's in VR. This mini-doco tracks 18 months of brainstorming, sweat, tears and a lot of laughter as our small team work together to produce a game on a shoestring budget and lots of goodwill. Come along for the ride as I convince Lewis that this can be done, and he is converted to the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef.
