Description

Holoville is a tiny two-guys company based in Rome. After working many years in the creation of interactive stuff for museums, expos and miscellaneous brands, we're now dedicating most of our time to making games. In the hope that dreams, when powered by hard work, may come true.

History

Early beginnings

When Daniele left his illustration job to focus on interactivity, and Andrea decided he wouldn't be an astronaut after all, we founded Holoville so we could remain at least partially independent. We started with interactive CDs and websites, and then focused on interactive content for touchscreens, aimed for museums, expos and brand advertising, which brought food to our table for various years.

And then the games

In 2011 Daniele had to create an engine to allow users to navigate inside the mysterious Kircher Museum, and that's when he got into Unity. The job was completed in a few months, but a dream was born and more games-like stuff wanted to happen, so he decided to try. He made many prototypes for various games, developed Journeyballs, Stackout and Goscurry, got to know fascinating people, and is working hard for it.
