For the last 10 months or so I've been doing consulting work for game studio startups, helping them with their tech. In particular I've helped with game networking, server performance & infrastructure, and security. At least one of the games is coming out soon and I'll make sure I post about it here.
While that's going on I've been exploring starting a game studio, after a few attempts trying with a Venture Capital compatible model I've changed course and instead started a small indie style studio. The studio is funded for now from my consulting work and hopefully augmented with additional funding from publishers or platforms in the future. The goal is to create a studio where creative people come together to build games to be proud of that find an audience sufficient to power the next project.
So here's the studio, New Avalon, our first project is a single player narratively driven strategy game. Not much to show yet, but I'm excited for the future!
Hey everyone, brand new tiny game studio here! We've just started working on the prototype for our first game.— New Avalon (@NewAvalonGames) July 22, 2022
Soon we'll be looking for developers to join us to help us create the foundations of the game and to help us craft a pitch for publishers.
