Evil Twin Questions
Tell us about your company, In Utero. Who are you guys and where did you come from?
In Utero is the Video Game department within the Mater Machina company. It is made of 30 experienced people, capable of developing on PC, Sega Dreamcast and Sony PSX & PS2. Founded in 1994, Mater Machina is a multi-format artistic production company, composed of several brands: "In Utero Game D-Vision” for Video Game, "In Utero Design D-Vision” for paper publishing, web design and 3D animated films and "In Utero Noise D-Vision” for musical publishing. The originality of the company is that it is neither intended to become a game publisher, nor an exclusive video game developer. Our aim is to provide entertaining content for any formats, be it console, PC, cinema, TV, animation, comic books, web sites or advertising. The company has also created a music department to be shared by the other departments. Of course, the core department of the company is and will remain the development of top quality video games!! The founders remain gamers at heart !
In Utero has previously participated to the development of Starshot, V Rallye, Virus, Time Machine, Odyssey and Superman. Evil Twin is our first game entirely developed internally...
23 persons worked on the project Evil Twin: 5 Game Designers, 5 2D artists, 4 3D artsits, 3 animators & 6 programmers.
