The studio's first project was a cooperative platformer for the PlayStation 3 entitled LittleBigPlanet, which has received worldwide acclaim and won several gaming awards. Evans contributed to LittleBigPlanet by creating a games engine for it. Evans has also been the figurehead for advertising the game to reviewers, and helping Sony showcase the game at various expos.

Evans was active in the Demoscene during the 1990s and was known by the handle "Statix". Most of his work was highly acclaimed - 303 is one of the first demos to include an entire vocal track (compressed into a standard module by a custom MPEG-packer) in the music, while Tomthumb and Staying Pictures are one of the first "generative" demos, the former being a winner of Most Original Concept at the 2002 Scene.org Awards.
