Our Story

 

 

The demo of The Far Rings was made from scratch in 48 hours as part of Global Game Jam 2019 for the theme:

"What does home mean to you?"

Our core team of included Heiden, Debbie Trader, Mira Kim, and Liam. Musicians Mike Morton, Markell Naylor, and Andy Stark made the original score together, and Morton provided extra SFX assets after the jam. None of us who had ever met before the jam, but our chemistry together spun the game from nothing like magic!

After our demo launched, Reece Bridger (VA for Odysseus) graciously offered to voice-over and scout talent for The Far Rings as we completed work on full release! And so we met Robyn McConnell (Chiron) and Rochelle J Chiang (Athena).

This little passion project wouldn't be nearly as wonderful without so many offering their different talents to make it ever better!

 

Thank you to everyone who has supported The Far Rings!
