“Fearless Girl” Stares Down Cannes Jury

On 31, Aug 2017 | In Accolades, News |

We love that we had a small hand in this literally ground-breaking, conversation-starting and innovative campaign. Ad Week provides the full recap: 4 Grand Prix, 18 total Lions, and untold numbers of inspired little girls, including some COPILOT offspring. While the statue is the main event, getting the emotional tone right for the accompanying film was critical to the campaign being understood and not misunderstood, and we’re glad we were there to help. Video after the jump.

Lots of Dishonored 2 News (In-Game Songs, Awards, Trailer Song Release)

On 10, Nov 2016 | In Accolades, News |

The fall release of Dishonored 2 was a big event for us at COPILOT. First of all, the game was recently named Game Of The Year by PC Gamer Magazine. It’s also up for GOTY at IGN. Why are we so excited?

Deep inside Karnaca, players have discovered a pair of street musicians. Finding these songs is a big achievement in the game, and we were really excited to start seeing game capture videos pop up on Youtube (we’ve collected them here). After all, we wrote and recorded these songs, which mine the culture and history of the fictional island of Serkonos. We really loved working on these and have been excited to see them embraced by the gaming community.  Even cooler, “Sands of Serkonos” actually appears as the end credits songs:
