A friend/coworker approached me a few months ago after he returned from an extended trip abroad. He told me he wanted to make games with me, referencing the tabletop game that I had been playtesting in our office. He's definitely more knowledgeable of the tabletop game world than I am, so I immediately said yes.
Fast forward to now, and I've got some exciting news. We are now formally a game studio, Nevershine LLC.
Our first project together is the tabletop game, but we have plans to also do video games. Right now, we're mainly focused on figuring out our path forward, finding publishers and fleshing out the game. We built and ordered our first dev kits, which are really just a bunch of printed postcards and some poker chips, but hey, better than the handwritten index cards they used to be.
I also plan to be publishing Evenfall Arcane under Nevershine. That has not fallen away. However, it may slow down development slightly, since I'm working full time at my day job, and working on building this studio / tabletop game with my partner.
I'm thrilled to finally have a registered, real company I can call my own game studio. It's a dream of mine, and I hope to see it work out. Time will tell.
