Working with Artifact5 has been an absolute delight on every side. They made us learn a lot and helped us develop our project in a very deep way. During the process, they became real collaborators and we hope to work again with them in the future.

It's been many times already that we've requested the help of Artifact 5 to support Double Stallion's development. They have proven to be leaders in graphics pipeline and shader development. Artifact 5 helped us achieve an iconic look to our games with advanced visual FX. Their team is experienced, attentive and worked closely with our tech and art teams to enable us to build beautiful and high-performing games.
