What is Venture Forth?

In "Venture Forth" medieval characters hilariously navigate a tabletop RPG called "Buildings & Bureaucrats" set in our modern world, where they roll dice to tackle everything from evading taxes to commuting in smog-filled streets. Guided by a Dungeon Master from a mystical crystal ball, their mishaps and adventures are filled with challenges like job interviews and Black Friday sales, battleing rich CEOs and cab drivers.

What is Weavers of Time?

What is noClip - Fear Beyond?

"noClip: Fear Beyond" is a cutting-edge VR horror game that immerses players in the eerie and expansive universe of the Backrooms, navigated from the confines of a wheelchair. This setting deepens the game’s unsettling atmosphere with unique mobility mechanics and puzzle elements tailored to the protagonist's physical limitations.

The game distinguishes itself by fully integrating all user interfaces into the physical environment, eliminating traditional game HUDs for enhanced realism. Health indicators, item inventories, and narrative clues are seamlessly embedded in-world, heightening immersion and tension without breaking the horror facade.

Enhancing the horror experience, "noClip: Fear Beyond" utilizes advanced sound and lighting to create an oppressive atmosphere of dread. Dynamic audio cues and minimal lighting keep players on edge, making the silent stretches between the creaks of the wheelchair intensely suspenseful. Coupled with the constant threat of lurking entities, the game ensures a relentlessly terrifying journey through the Backrooms.

What is Worlds Beyond The Grave?

Embark on an epic journey across the cosmos with Fate, a charming fugitive alien fleeing from the clutches of destiny, and his unlikely partner Fe, a feline from Earth swept up in the intrigue!

This grand tale of a graphic novel unfolds amidst a backdrop of a war-torn and fractured galaxy, where strange alien civilizations collide, epic battles shape destinies, deep dramaand asprinkle of humor.

💕 Some Ppl who like what we do.

It is rare you find a talented creative who can pour themselves into something, and preserve enough balance to be ready to adapt and adjust. In his role at Strawhouse Jeff was the perfect blend of genius, speed, and humble to help us hone in quickly on creatives that were transformational for our clients.

Mark How

Ceo & Founder

Jeff is a skilled and talented professional with an amazing ability to pursue his passions and professional work with the same vigour and drive. He works well with others and knows how to take a team and make them a family with his natural charm and charisma! I would work with jeff again and again!

Myke Allen

Graphically Ill

I originally met Jeff when he was a student of mine at Camosun College. He then took the full time course I teach at the Victoria School of Business and Technology. Jeff, in both situations, was exemplary. His ability to absorb the information as well as understand the technology and its potential was only surpassed by his willingness to help those students around him. It was because of that I encouraged Jeff to take on the role of an instructor.

Building Our Own Cartoons & Awesome Community!

Premiered Mar 1, 2022

Animation has been seen for the most part as something you just watch. Video games use animation, but they are not the same as our favorite cartoons. So how do we find a way to step into a middle ground between games and shows? Our answer to this was community.

Starting with the community we build up an expanded universe, but our expanded universe exists in an animated world, one we want to open to our community and our team to play in, tell stories together in, and grow together as an ever expanding world of animated shorts.

We Are growing a universe of shows with unprecedented access to our behind the scenes development through Patreon, NFT Collectible Characters (Safely and Securely through Flair.Finance) Special Events, and our Discord community with Creative sessions, developer diaries, and so much more.

We have been working hard for years as a small team, working to make our passion a realized world of shows built with our fans, and delivered with heart. Join the Revolution!
