Our studio is comprised of mainly of college students, with many of us having joined as a way to learn and practice our skills. Our goal with this studio is not only to learn how to make games, but also to make games that people enjoy as much as the games we enjoyed as kids. Later on, once we get further along and have released our first game, we are going to transition from a purely Game Design studio to an Entertainment studio. This studio will then create all kinds of things, from mods, to games, to stories, to music, and much more!
All of our members are very driven in their goal to grow game development in the Appalachian region. As such, many of our members worked with other local game developers to form the Appalachian Game Creators Association. The goal of this organization is to provide resources and funding to game developers in our region, while also becomming educators. The organization is bringing game development into classrooms in our regions, spreading all we know about art, programming, and sound design.
