SacriFire - 2023

"For as long as we have worked on SacriFire, we’ve held to one simple but ambitious concept: to take the best of the games we grew up with (Vagrant Story and Xenogears amongst them) and to combine those elements with contemporary storytelling and QoL improvements in order to create an RPG experience that feels simultaneously nostalgic and modern."

Snufkin: Melody of Moominvalley - 2023

"A musical adventure game in which Snufkin needs to restore the harmony of Moominvalley, after a series of grotesque parks has appeared and ruined the valley's natural balance. The game is an ambient and wholesome experience for both kids and adults, and combines open world-mechanics with puzzles, stealth and melodic elements."
