Sidhe Interactive

Sidhe Interactive logo

Sidhe Interactive is a game development studio recognized for producing high quality entertainment titles with world class creative and software
development skills.

Developing across console, handheld, and PC platforms, Sidhe has created a range of innovative products including the award winning original title GripShift ®, the successful Rugby League series, genre defining Melbourne Cup Challenge, and Jackass: The Game.

Second Intention developed and optimised a suite of postprocessing effects for the Wii version of Speed Racer the videogame, as well as asssisting with renderer optimisation and other visual effects work. It was an interesting challenge to bring high-quality post processing to a platform often seen as less powerful, but the results speak for themselves. Without the postprocessing work it would have been difficult for the game to match the innovative look of the movie.
