This production company was trying to get funding for a videogame, and did so by lying about everyone involved in it. They claimed their employers had been developers for the World of Warcraft series and Diablo II, but in reality they had almost no experience. On top of that, all the images from the game where actually constructed by stealing backgrounds and scenarios from other games. Even the “office” was a crop from a design group!
