It Begins and Ends With A Story

Steeven Labeau’s Art

Steeven credits his early creative development to an artistic family. His grandfather sculpted wooden figures, his mother wrote books, and his father liked to draw. Likewise, his sister painted and his brother aspired to be a comic book artist. As an aspiring paleontologist, Steeven spent a lot of time hunting for fossils in his parents’ garden. As an aspiring game designer, he spent a lot of time playing his Game Boy. And as an aspiring comic book artist, he spent a lot of time reading comics. You could say Steeven had big dreams.

Sometimes… it […]

Bringing Characters to Life

One important aspect of a successful video game, that we at Games Omniverse understand, is having a cast of characters worth caring about.
