We're Daxnd Studios, a Bay Area creative team specializing in visual storytelling. With years of experience crafting interactive narratives such as Tales from the Borderlands and The Wolf Among Us, we now seek to take our skills and apply them to our own original projects catering to demographics often ignored by modern media.

Our first project is the graphic adventure game Slipstream Scalawags, now in development. Inspired by classic point and click titles like Monkey Island, and featuring relationship management mechanics drawn from titles like Persona and Mass Effect, Slipstream Scalawags sends players to a world of space pirates and ruthless Federation forces, and tells a fun, funny, heartfelt story that focuses on empathy, connectivity, and understanding, presenting a human story from a distinctly queer perspective about fighting for your place in the galaxy.

You can see a bit of what's in store via our gameplay trailer here:


Since we are a small and scrappy team, we have no publisher or investor support backing. As a result, we are turning to Patreon in order to achieve our goal of creating engaging emotional experiences for audiences who rarely are catered to by mainstream film, tv and games.
