GV Film provided distributer Big Sugar with platfom services and rebranding for this important title which now has almost a quarter of a million views on the PS4 Youtube channel.

Valfaris ‘Bringer Of Mayhem’

The ‘Bringer of Mayhem’ is one of Valfaris’ most devastating weapons. The in-game version has a powerful beam that can connect to multiple targets and efficiently liquefy those targets into an explosive splatter of rupturing guts. While the model seen in this video is just a prop and not actually capable of combusting internal organs, it does feature working lights and can ‘breathe’ smoke. The model was made in Bristol, UK, by the talented model-making folks at Alban Studios, whose client list includes Aardman Animations – the people behind Wallace & Gromit, Shaun the Sheep, and many more.
