French Roast Studios is an independent game studio in Orange County, CA, USA. We're creating awesome, interactive experiences and games for a variety of platforms, but mostly for PC and mobile devices. You can view our blog and twitter feed here:
Our current projects include:
A slight twist on the arcade vertically scrolling shooter. This game utilizes a different mechanic of tactical dogfights to take out waves of enemies. In between missions, you can explore and interact with your team, similar to the old Wing Commander 3 series, using mini-games and crew dialog to boost your battle stats and unlock new planes and weapons!
A magical, fantasy action platformer metroidvania game. This one's been on the back burner for ages. Conjurer is planned to be broken into a trilogy, spanning across the lives of three brave adventurers, a mage, a rogue, and a warrior, within the same world, across different eras. Been looking for the time and funding to get this one into full production. Help and make it a reality!
I'm wrapping up a client project that's been in the works for a couple years. A cross between a hidden object game and a choose-your-own-adventure novel. More info on that later, the client is a little secretive about it.
I enjoy making little weekend projects, usually related to my daughters' fickle whims and fancies. It's good practice! Platforms will likely be for iOS, Android, and Oculus. I'll likely be hosting Twitch TV sessions documenting development of each project.
