Just like that it's time for a new recap as another year races by. And what a year it has been! During the course of 2021 we've more than doubled our size and we're finishing the year as a team of 25. Continued expansion has allowed to us welcome awesome new artists to our team, enabled us to stay on the cutting edge of VFX production and invest even more heavily into other areas we feel very excited about. Head on over to the about page to meet our team!
This has been an incredibly eventful year and we've had the opportunity to work on and help release some amazing games and experiences. Our work is being consumed by millions of people world wide and we're very grateful to be able to keep helping advance this exciting industry and the field of visual effects forward. Here's just a few of the project we've had the pleasure of working on during the year:
In 2021 we've stepped up our internal development efforts in a large way by expanding our tech art and game development teams, the work of which can already be seen!
In October we've released our first proprietary tool TFlow, a motion vector generator that helps increase the utility and quality of your flipbooks and we've been very pleased with it's positive reception. TFlow is currently available for Unity and coming to the Unreal marketplace soon.
We've been busy developing our first game as a team and we're excited to show you more very soon, keep your eyes on our social networks in the next weeks as we gear up towards a big announcement!
Every month at Tuatara we pick a charitable cause we feel strongly about and make a donation towards it as a team. To close the year off we decided to do something special so we hosted a 3 day charity stream event on Twitch to fundraise for Child's Play, a charity that improves the lives of children through play.
Together with the community we were able to raise $7,132.65 dollars for this great cause!
Additionally, most of the source materials from our lectures are available on Github as well.
Next year is shaping up to be our biggest yet and we're very excited to be sharing it with you along the way, stay tuned for exciting new releases and announcements as we return from our break.
From all of us at Tuatara, happy Holidays and wonderful New Year, hope you're staying safe and in the company of your loved ones.
