renown entertainmentGet the latest game developed by Vancouver’s Renown EntertainmentGetting Buckets features basketball superstars Baron Davis, Steve Nash, Rajon Rondo, Brandon Jennings and Candace Parker dribbling through four US basketball hotbeds armed with amazing Mad Skills, Power Ups, and ricochet ball passing physics. Shut down Hack and Swat… the D’s on the street trying to take you out.

President James Lau notes “When Renown was approached by 5 Balloons Interactive to develop a Triple A iOS title, we were immediately on board. It was a no brainer given the reputation and experience of interactive entertainment producer, Sean O’Brien. He drove a struggling next-gen franchise to a platform best Metacritic score. With a strong Getting Bucketstrack record, we were excited to execute his latest vision in the mobile space.

Sean placed a lot of trust, respect and freedom in Renown allowing us to create a highly polished pick up and play game with over-the-top key moments. We’re receiving positive feedback from players touting the addictive gameplay and polished experience.”

“Renown used custom workflows and project management/tracking for (Getting) Buckets resulting in streamlined reviews, iterations, and approvals with the client. This allowed us to create Getting Buckets with our quality artisan method while being mindful of the overall budget and deliverables.

Getting Buckets was developed with Unity3D. This is our current game engine of choice as it strikes a balance between cost, quality, and performance.”

“We hope gamers and fans of Renown Entertainment enjoy the result of this collaboration.”
