"Adding the perspective of filmmaking to video game development brings interactive entertainment to the next level. We all share the same vision, and Neill is the perfect completion to the narrative and visual art lead roles in our team," Korolev continued.

"We are extremely proud that he is joining us -- while we are creating our own universe, some of our inspiration originates in his works. We always hoped we can add a bit of his magic to our game -- now this is happening."
