Description

Fireside Games is a tiny indie studio working out of Vancouver Canada, creating experiences to be enjoyed by everyone. Among them collectively, they have a long history of working within the AAA PC and console space. Now, Fireside are taking all of that experience and building fun, beautifully crafted and imaginative games for mobile.

History

The Team

Fireside was started by a few friends who collectively have over three decades of game industry experience in Art and Production. Although the studio was officially founded in February of 2017, the team had been slowly working out ideas for a game they could call their own about two years prior. Their motivation was twofold; first, having tackled mostly big budget/big team games in their careers, they had the urge to do something of smaller scale. Second, having primarily worked on titles aimed at the male 18-35 year old demographic, they felt motivated to create something wholesome that everyone could enjoy. One thing was certain to remain the same however, and that was their commitment to quality, polish, and good taste.

Tools

Having many years in the game industry, the guys were well versed in the tools and techniques of the trade. It was pretty clear that the backbone of their endeavor would be the Unity 3D engine. However, having very little coding experience amongst them, they needed another way to actually develop the game. This is where Hutong Games' visual scripting tool Playmaker came into their pipeline. Both Unity and Playmaker allowed a few friends to develop a game from start to finish without writing any code.

Rise 'n' Shine

The team rallied around their first project, Rise 'n' Shine', in the spring of 2015. This was to be their first foray into the indie game scene. Click the Rise 'n' Shine link below to learn more...
