is a small independent game development studio. The company has been established in 2013. The title “Niffelheim” is currently in development: a 2D open world RPG game in fantasy setting. The title release is scheduled for winter 2015-2016.
The team includes three permanent employees united not only by friendship and family bonds, but above all things by the love of games and game development. We have combined efforts to create a game set in a breathtaking hand-drawn world designed by the studio founder, artist Eduard Arutyunyan. Maryan Yaroma, our programmer, visited a game development studio at the age of 10 and has been writing code for gaming projects ever since. Andrey Arutyunyan makes an invaluable contribution to the project managing communications and business development.
We have set off our long path towards “Niffelheim” three years ago. Everyone at the studio is a big fan of mystical fantasy genre. We also feel strongly for Norse mythology and Middle Ages with their knights and wonderful castles. The series of epic novels “A Song of Fire and Ice” by George R. R. Martin as well as the TV series based on the books greatly influenced the project.
We also pursued the idea to create a game world based on rules from the games from our childhood, where players build castles, harvest resources, where evil lurks and victory awaits a brave warrior. We were inspired and influenced by different games, like «The Elder Scrolls», «Terraria» and many more. We are trying hard to give the game the feel of mystery and we still have a long way to go. Our goal is to develop maybe not a large-scale, but a high quality game putting our hearts and skills into the work.
