Stonewood Games: An introduction


Forged deep in the bowels of reddit (gameDevClassifieds & INAT), Stonewood Games is a small indie-development team with members from the US, Canada, UK, and Middle Earth–I mean New Zealand. We started forming in May, and after almost 5 months, we have finally established a solid team. None of us have ever met in real life and none of us are getting paid to do this, so this ought to make for an interesting story…And if it doesn’t? Well, we’re going to share it with you anyway.

So join us as we set sail on the good ship Elle!

-“What the hell is Elle?!”

Oh, right. So we’re making this game…

(Sooner or later we’ll get some sort of fancy features page going, but until then), here’s a quick pitch:

The Crusades ended in an earth-shattering apocalypse. Now chunks of land float through the atmosphere and all that remain are a few Hand Temple ruins and a few Orb ships.

…and YOU.

You’re Elle – a sneaky, bow-shooting fox with amnesia and a mechanical left arm. With help from a giant snail and an even more giant turtle, you must survive these strange new wilds and solve the mysteries of this bizarre world!
