Ever since Avicii Invector was released, fans have been asking for VR. Over the years we tossed around some ideas but never really got rid of the motion sickness, until now.
My role in this project was to lead a team responsible for porting and adapting the game previously released on PC and consoles. Meta Quest 2 and its tetherless headset delivered both in usability as well as hardware. But in order to utilize this platform more effectively, we needed to convert the entire render pipeline as well as optimize the graphics a lot.
I made two trailers for this game, one teaser showing how the player avatar left the TV screen, flying into the oculus headset. The second trailer was more of a launch trailer in the form of a recap of all the work Hello There Games done in collaboration with Avicii, all the way back since 2013.

My role in this project was project manager, overseeing the realisation of this game first conceived as a companion app for his music shows. But as the covid pandemic raged across the globe the app transformed into a game driving the release of his album and series of online short films in the middle of 2021
Aside from leading a group of extremely talented people I also created many trailers for the game up until and after its release.

Position: Project manager / Senior animator at Hello There.
Originally released 2017 for Playstation 4, the game is a collaboration between Hello There Games and the late Tim Bergling. After his passing, an effort was made to fine-tune the game, add new content and release it on additional platforms.
I took over the role as a project manager, handling planning, scoping, evaluation on a daily basis. The team at Hello There Games really delivered on this title both in quality and content. To watch the game finally getting the proper release it deserves and sees the amount of love and attention from the gaming community brings tears to my eye. I hope that our efforts live up to the dream that Hello There Games and Tim started over four years ago.
Available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One with Nintendo Switch releasing some time during 2020
