Sovereign Syndicate


Terms of Use

At Crimson Herring Studios, we aim to tell profound stories through immersive video games by letting well-crafted narratives lead our development efforts. We want to inspire other storytellers to use the medium of game development to craft new experiences and worlds.

We encourage the participation of marginalized groups in our gaming community and seek their input to give a credible voice to the characters and perspectives we share in our games. By seeking out members of these marginalized communities and engaging with them on issues that are important to them, we can develop more inclusive games.

We’re an indie studio headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada with a talented, diverse, remote-working team. As a group of storytellers, we focus on narrative-driven games with a twist of mystery and intrigue.
