Risen Games is a Massachusetts-based independent game studio made up of Adam Pastorello, Ryan LaPlume, Riley Brown, and Nathan Brown. We create retro-inspired Games for PC and Mobile.
Risen Games was founded in 2012 following the collapse of a game studio Adam, Ryan, and Riley had been working at. They immediately began work on their first title, Core Dive, a marble-maze game set in crumbling sky temples that saw release on mobile platforms in 2013. While not a financial success, Core Dive was featured as Amazon's Free App of the Day and received many downloads and showing Risen Games that they really could make games on their own.Adrift
Frustration at the lack of co-op games that could be played by more than four people and a plague of online friends demanding their attention inspired the team's next project in 2013. After three months of work the team had a solid prototype and took it to Boston Festival of Indie Games at MIT. Positive feedback encouraged them to put Adrift on Steam Greenlight and try crowdfunding development via Kickstarter. After 30 days Adrift failed to meet its goal and seemed like it would never be fully realized.Stardrift Nomads
After a year-long hiatus an email arrived from Steam in 2014, Adrift had been Greenlit. The Steam community wanted this game and it would be a shame to leave it unfinished, but Adrift needed a complete overhaul. The next two years were a flurry of redesign and revamping every aspect of the prototype, Stardrift Nomads was the result. Stardrift Nomads is set to launch April 7th, 2017 on Steam for PC, Mac, and Linux. After three years of development, the Risen Games team is excited to finally release this game to the public.
