Developer Spotlight – Sunscale Studios
Sunscale Studios joined The Game Incubator in 2017, after studying game development at the University of Skövde. They are a tight knit team of four developers who have gathered in Skövde from all over Sweden to work together and to make the games that they would want to play themselves.
Sunscale develops small, compact games with focus on using simple and straight forward mechanics to make challenging and engaging gameplay. They want to contribute to making the games industry a more equal place, and to break some of the negative stereotypes that can be found in many games today.
Sunscale created Hyss, a lighthearted puzzle adventure with focus on platforming, puzzle solving and throwing cows. But this year at Nordic, they are showing a brand new project called Scrambled. This is a rhythm based beat ’em up… between bread and eggs! All attacks must be performed to the beat of the music, in its current state, the project contains several different environments and music genres.
As per their presence at Nordic specifically, their goal is to meet new potential partners, such as publishers and investors, for their future projects. “We hope to meet interesting people in general that can contribute to our development in some way, and to get inspired by other developers at the conference. We are, of course also eager to expand our business network, especially since we want to learn more about the newest store fronts and game platforms!” said Rebecca Romin, CEO & Marketing Director at Sunscale Studios.
