It's in the details


We love adding small details to Kingdom of the Dragon. Something as simple as leaves blowing in the wind, or a torch emitting an ember can add so much life to an otherwise bland, lifeless scene. We're well over a year and a half into production, but we always find new things to add that bring more life to the game.

The truth is, we could probably keep adding things forever and never be satisfied. There's always going to be one more thing we could tweak. One more sound effect. One more animation. And it's actually a whole lot of fun and very rewarding to go back and add extra layers of polish.

We strive to make our games the highest quality experiences possible. We want people to play our games and hopefully notice the amount of thought and detail we put into everything we do. We hope you notice those spider webs swaying in the breeze, and the embers floating out from the torches on the wall.

We can't wait for you to play Kingdom of the Dragon. We're getting more and more excited the closer we get to the end of development. If you haven't already, follow us on social media to stay up to date on the development process. We plan on announcing some really cool stuff in the coming months.
