Every game begins its journey with a central idea or theme. We help you translate and communicate that theme through visually appealing concept art. Creating concept art is a visual development process that involves making basic sketches, fine tuning them and then creating finished artwork for the game with color rendering. We make multiple iterations of each idea to fully explore all creative possibilities so that our clients have the flexibility to choose the direction that appeals to them the most.

Level designers have to strike a tricky a balance to keep players engaged – the levels have to be complex enough to allow players to test their skills and yet involve enough rewards to ensure that they do not get bored. Our team at ZE Studio has some of the best game level designers in the industry who understand how to create levels that challenge players and keep them interested in the game.
