Titans of Aotearoa
Titans of Aotearoa (T.O.A) brings a world of Māori heroes and mythology to audiences in Aotearoa and around the world, beginning with an exciting console video game series.
The first T.O.A. release is an action-adventure console video game – set in Te-Moana-nui-a-kiwa during the Pacific migration era, with gameplay from the perspective of fictional lead character Toa.
To kick off the T.O.A. world we collaborated with a hugely talented team of artists to create a 3-part sizzle reel, introducing characters and settings based around different poignant moments in Polynesian history, myth and legend.
