TITLE: Quantum Conundrum

COMPANY: Airtight Games

Airtight Games faced two issues with ‘Quantum Conundrum’. They needed the world to be able to re-colour itself in response to ‘dimensional shifts’, and they needed an art style that had a cartoon look, with bold colours and gradients. Enlighten solved both of these problems.

Enlighten’s handling of ‘dynamic albedo’ ensures that changes in surface properties are immediately fed into the global lighting. The artistic look was achieved using hidden geometry acting as area lights. These were easily tuned and ensured the game had precisely the look that the artists were seeking.
