‘The Art Behind the Game – The Ubisoft Experience’ celebrates the remarkable achievements of the video game series, Assassin’s Creed, created by the French gaming company Ubisoft. This exhibition, produced by Voilah! French Festival Singapore, curated and designed by WY-TO, brings the public through a memorable journey to discover the stories behind the acclaimed franchise, providing a behindthe- scenes look at the design and development process of this engaging, vast and enveloping tale. With content provided from the Ubisoft archives, ‘The Art Behind the Game – The Ubisoft Experience’ weaves together three main story lines around the Assassin’s Creed franchise: The Success Story of Ubisoft, the Saga of Assassin’s Creed and the Design of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
Ubisoft – The Success Story.
A window into the past 30 years of Ubisoft, depicting pivotal game releases since the inception of the company in 1986 and their impact on the gaming industry, as well as Ubisoft’s expansion into a global development force.
Assassin’s Creed – The Saga.
The Assassin’s Creed Saga spans most of modern history. From The Third Crusade of the 1190’s through the early intellectual age of The Renaissance, the Golden Age of Piracy and even the French Revolution of the 18th Century, orient yourself within the saga of all major Assassin’s Creed releases and their place in history.
The design of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
Visitors will experience a unique look into the processes designers undertake during the development of the game. Behind game environment design, character design and fashion, or sound and music design there is an exciting story to be heard.
‘The Art Behind the Game – The Ubisoft Experience’ is much more than an exhibition about design. It is also about the amazing developers behind the game and the collaboration between them. For instance, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is the result of the work of eight Ubisoft studios around the world! Within the teams, artists work with programmers, designers, animators, producers, sound designers, writers, game testers and a lot more to create massive open-world games. This exhibition is dedicated to all the talent and teams who worked on Assassins’ Creed and to the entire Ubisoft Singapore studio.
