The VR catalog is about to be reshaped by the artists and dreamers at MoonHood, the newly-announced studio from the creators of acclaimed titles such as ‘Lost in Random’ and ‘Ghost Giant’. In collaboration with experienced publisher Fast Travel Games, MoonHood is sculpting a dark and immersive world, translating real life elements like clay into intricate 3D models for a groundbreaking gaming experience.
MoonHood was conceived in Gothenburg, Sweden, by Klaus Lyngeled and Olov Redmalm, the brilliant minds behind award-winning projects like ‘Lost in Random’ and the VR-exclusive ‘Ghost Giant’. The duo’s reputation for melding innovative gameplay with unique artistic style is the cornerstone of MoonHood. The studio’s vision is grounded in the belief that games are a potent form of art, capable of transporting players into dreamlike realms, offering impactful experiences in the most immersive of mediums.
The collaboration with Fast Travel Games promises to deliver a multi-platform gaming experience available on console, PC, and VR, allowing gamers to explore bizarre landscapes and face terrifying creatures.

The moldable textures of clay and cardboard are meticulously transformed into high-definition 3D models, offering players a journey shifting between the fantastical and the eerie.
MoonHood’s rich history, including the beautiful and artistic ‘Ghost Giant’, underscores the studio’s commitment to pushing creative boundaries. The team’s extensive experience and proven track record ensure that their upcoming title will resonate with fans of innovative and artistic VR content.
