Soul Gem Games was set up by me, Russ. It’s been a lifelong passion to create games for people to enjoy. Whether it be played by 1 person or 100 people.
I’m hoping to use some of my experience and knowledge within the gaming realms and apply it to an enjoyable and polished game.
What Game are you looking to make?
The first that I am looking to release is a high fantasy survival game for Android and iOS. I’ve always been fascinated with the Survival genre, in both games and real life, with Day Z really taking a hold of me.
The reason for the high fantasy setting is that there just aren’t that many around. Certainly not when you compare it to a post apocalyptic setting, with zombies everywhere. Whilst a lot of people enjoy that setting, i’d like to serve up something a little different.
Do you have any future projects?
I always have ideas for the next game. The setting is complete but the genre of game is not. When Avalon Isle is complete (circa Q1 2017), content updates and patches will be released for the next 12 months. If the game is popular then I will look to extend that.
As this is going on development of the next game will take place.
Why “Soul Gem Games”
Soul Gems or Soul Stones have been a constant item throughout my gaming life. From Dark Age of Camelot to Elder Scrolls Online to World of Warcraft and everything in between
(particularly the Elder Scrolls series).
It was also one of the few names left with a real domain I could use!
