Creativity is our business. Technology is our canvas.

Founded in 2013 from the marriage of a Design Agency and Software Development company in Cambridge we became The Fusion Works. Highly skilled software development, coding and design all in one house. We build Websites, Apps and specialise in VR for business. We work with our clients on a B2B or B2C level by helping them to build or promote their brand, product or ethos so that they can grow, improve and take their business to new heights.

Game Design & Development

3D Modelling

  • 20
  • 40
  • 60

Extensive knowledge of custom 3D modelling for promotional gaming.

Programmer

Coding is another area where The Fusion Works shines. Coming from a background of poking pixels and developing games using BASIC programming language means that getting under the hood of a 3D Engine and making it do things it wasn't intended to do is something that doesn't phase us.

Engineer (Server-Side)

  • 20
  • 40
  • 60
  • 80
  • 100

We have a vast knowledge of intranet and extranet development which can only help us with server side implementation of a gaming system. From databases to lightning fast communications protocols and even cross platform challenges, The Fusion Works will find an elegant solution.

Developer (Automation & Pipeline)

  • 20
  • 40
  • 60
  • 80
  • 100

We design and build games from the ground up so we can develop everything under the one roof in Cambridge. We take a game through every aspect of the pipeline to completion.

Virtual Reality

We backed Palmer Lucky and the Oculus Rift DK version 1 as soon as we found out about it. Most of our team remembers an earlier attempt at Virtual Reality back in the late 80's when seaside arcades would allow you to put on a headset and fly a wire frame plane simulator. Now graphics cards can convince you that the VR world you are in is more realistic than before we had to be a part of this movement.

Publishing

  • 20
  • 40
  • 60
  • 80
  • 100

We publish on a multitude of platforms including: Android PLAY, Apple App Store, Samsung Gear VR, Oculus, HTC Vive, and PC.

Photorealism

  • 20
  • 40
  • 60
  • 80
  • 100

This is a particular interest where we want to be able to get gaming engine realism so that real time exploration of a 3D world can look as good as the pr-erendered video ray traced version.

Animator (Character)

  • 20
  • 40
  • 60
  • 80
  • 100

Whether its working with Mixamo or the old fashioned ping pong ball suit or even recording our own using a Kinect device, we can gather some very effective results using our knowledge and expertise of what is available.

Engineer (Build)

  • 60
  • 80
  • 100

14039527-ad2d-4694-b166-1885cb411082_Small

We can put together many different systems to come up with a unique system. Whether it's pulling in Kinect, Bluetooth (BLE), Hand Tracking, or even developing in shoe game controller soles to play a snowboarding game.

We were writing games since the Sinclair Spectrum and Commodore 64 era of 8 bit computers. Coming through the ages of 3D engines such as Ogre and the XNA we now use Unity and C# to code most of what we build to do with computer games. If we need to incorporate some low level Bluetooth device into a control or separate display device, then we have no problem mixing and matching back end technologies and development languages.

System Gamification

  • 20
  • 40
  • 60
  • 80
  • 100

This is a major consideration which can carry over to the design and implementation of a business solution. You want the users to enjoy engaging with a system so that they want to come back and keep it up to date. The medical field can benefit from this as well with patient's passively providing useful data by interacting with a system as though it is a game. We at The Fusion Works love developing new concepts in this arena to benefit our customers.
