Killzone is a sci-fi FPS franchise from Amsterdam based Guerrilla Games. For the launch of the PlayStation Vita platform, Guerrilla Cambridge (formerly SCE Cambridge Studio) were tasked with the development of a handheld version, with IGN later describing it as “the best portable shooter ever made.”

Working closely with the Cambridge based development team, the brief was to develop the visual style of the UI in line with the narrative of the game as well as utilising touchscreen controls.

After researching current military technology, the aesthetic and functionality was then reimagined as to how it would exist in the Killzone universe. This project also offered the opportunity to work with Territory Studio on the in-game animated cutscenes.
