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.

As a relatively new studio working on our first project, we are drawing on our team’s experience developing successful titles such as Jade Empire and Neverwinter Nights by Bioware, The Long Dark by Hinterland Studios, and Eon Altar by Flying Helmet Games.

Since our founding in April 2020, we’ve been selected by the Canada Media Fund for their Conceptualization Program and we are excited to have completed the prototype of our first title: Sovereign Syndicate.
