Stories help us navigate our lives, stories move us, and make us better. They rarely get attention in the action-oriented world of video games. We enlisted a group of script advisors to help us make sure that Thistledown was a beautiful story well told.
We sought to make a world that felt real and bigger than the story itself, so we put in major work building the world of Thistledown, only 10% of which will be in the game. We made a world that feels like you are only glimpsing a bit of it, because you are.
We take pains to animate and create unique portraits and personas for every character in our 60+ cast of characters.
We don't do throw-away NPCs.
Thistledown is a small, personal story set in an epic fantasy world. It's a meditation on the pain and helplessness that we feel in the face of tragedy, and how we cope.
