Brussels-based production outfit Off World leads the pack with no fewer than two greenlit projects.

The list might not be endless, the projects are promising with several new titles from production outfit Lunanime, known for their work on A Cat in Paris, and a big-budget sequel to Sammy’s Adventures by nWave.
