Intr Studio at Unreal Fest 2024

Unreal Fest 2024 was an amazing experience for Intr Studio with an excellent line-up of interesting and empowering talks, networking and connecting with other studios and developers from all across Australia. We are especially proud that we got invited as speakers, talking about how Intr Studio resurrects and tests the viability of our old IP "Legacy of Cthulhu" by creating a custom map in UEFN. Managing Director Caitlin Lomax and Production Director Ivan Ertlov explained the initial considerations, the decision-making process leading to using UEFN and how our small but enthusiastic team managed to translate the dark and gritty atmosphere of the original into a new, lush art style that blends well into Fortnite but still preserves the cosmic horror.

The talk was well received and sparked a few discussions with interested developers and people familiar with the original game, giving us fresh motivation to finalize the map and send it to testing.

The value of attending events like Unreal Fest, especially for a regional WA studio like ours, cannot be emphasized enough. Because of that, we want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Shire of Dardanup for their support through their personal development grant!

We left the Gold Coast deeply satisfied and with a bunch of fresh ideas, dedicated to return to the next Unreal Fest - wherever it may take place!
