How Unity’s flexibility helps power IMMORTALITY’s unique gameplay and storytelling

How does a small team create a nonlinear narrative game with full-motion video (FMV) – and deliver this high-scale, high-file size experience to players on consoles, desktop, and mobile? With Unity’s flexible development platform and their own partnerships with Netflix Games and Xbox®, Half Mermaid launched the award-winning IMMORTALITY, an interactive trilogy that turns match cuts into gameplay and deconstructs the medium of cinema.

“The cross-platform nature of Unity has always been a key part of its appeal.”

– Sam Barlow, Game Designer, Half Mermaid
