For the past decade this Christchurch-based studio has been home to 50 dedicated game makers that own or support the delivery for an impressive resume of clients, projects and franchises that include the biggest entertainers in the world.
Formed in 2009 by Benjamin Dellaca, CerebralFix has not focused on making its own content and has instead thrived in the contract work environment, becoming a household name for development within Disney, Universal, Pixar and Dreamworks. The studios year on year success is a testament to the strengthening relationships they are able to hold within these entertainment giants and there is an exciting future ahead as they make the move towards producing their own games leveraging the relationships and entertainment properties of their clients to bring new and exciting experiences to the world.
Alongside their mostly game development properties, CerebralFix has also partnered with multiple Christchurch companies to develop VR training and simulation products, one of these a radiography simulation which is in use as part of the curriculum at nearby Ara Institute of Canterbury. Cerebral Fix
