How it all started
ScienceTales: CERN has come a long way, but it originally started as a side project. Juliette had an off-the-cuff idea for an educational physics game and thought it was an idea worth exploring. At the time, Reddlock was working on paid projects in AR/VR, but the seed had been planted. The hypothetical project grew through brainstorms and meetings. When the possibility of a collaboration with CERN arose, the team agreed it was time to take a leap of faith. The company scaled down to fully concentrate on delivering this concept. This was when Bob joined, bringing an aesthetic and narrative vision to a project that was still in its early stages. Now, after a year of research, partner meetings, and a trip to CERN, they’re pouring everything they’ve learned thus far into making ScienceTales: CERN great!
