About Affray Studios
More information below.
Games / Affray InteractiveHello! We are Affray Studios, a collaborative between international team members with the collective interest to create great stuff. We officially started in game development in 2018, with a Kickstarter for "SCP: Ascension", of which we have recently decided to rebrand into our own creative franchise known as "In The Balance".
Films / Affray ProductionsDue to the industry and technological overlap between games and film, we have decided to experiment with short films. We will be making both SCP and ITB-related projects here since the licensing is less complicated with SCP films than it is with games.
We don't have any super official plans with this yet, but any investments made in it will make a return to our game side - examples being motion capture, camera tracking, in-game tapes, and much more. Film work is primarily planned to be made in real-time using Unreal Engine.
Why our games are no longer SCP-based after SCP: Ascension/PandemicFor the most part, the licensing is complicated. We need to be able to protect what we make and the SCP license (CC BY-SA 3.0) is hard to work with for that. We have had no intention of just ripping lore from the wiki and claiming it's our own, just simply that we want to protect the visual assets and code. We were able to work this out with the wiki's IO team, but it's just a lot to go through.
Another super big thing is creative control and individuality. We've always wanted to be unique with our work, and the SCP license pretty much means that anyone can make the exact same thing without any issue. We also don't want to worry about conflicting with the headcanon of different individuals on different topics... we needed something that was entirely our own.
We have formed ITB also for a reason outside of just us... we plan on opening it up to other creators without any licensing difficulties or fear of overlap with other creators. It will be something that we will be able to license to developers, short filmmakers, artists, and so on to take on different parts of the creative universe outlined by us or made entirely by them in a way that ties back into the overarching lore. We think this is probably the most exciting part of this specific ambition.
ITB will not be competing with SCP, rather it will be a different option for the creators that need an alternative with the same community presence and similar creative principles for either legal or creative reasons - or both like us.
