Let’s Play Gemfire!

Ok, so I realize that it’s been a very long time since our last update and I apologize for that. We have still been working on the game although it has been hard and at times we have had to deal with other issues and had to put the game on the back burner for a while. Things are still moving forward though! We are going to do our best to update more often going forward. I know we have said that before and failed, but we’re going to keep trying. We do have some updates lined up for the near future. We are hoping to update every two weeks on the Wednesday. So check back then.

We have for you right now a Let’s Play of Gemfire, the game that inspired Sunset Over Lievnos. I have loved Gemfire since I was a kid but Erika has never played it. Considering she is working on a game that is inspired by it, I thought it would be a good idea for her to play it, so we recorded it!

Watch our Gemfire Let’s Play now:


We’re back!

I apologize for the delay in getting the site back up again, but at last it’s finally here. There may be a few issues with the conversion, so if you find something not working, let me know. We’ll have more substantial content shortly!

Works in Progress

Here are a couple of works that are just sketches at this point. We have been working hard on character development, plot development, and just general story making. My plan is to now start creating some illustrations which are more emblematic of the story we are going to tell.


A couple that will be important right at the start. No spoilers! Stop asking.


A title piece I have had on my list for a long time. Now I have images I can put in here that are actually from our plot! Not just for decoration. Don’t look at that knights hand … I have to fix that.




Under a rock.

NO! I have not died.

… I just wanted you to know.


Yep. These are for things. Things you may have seen in a screenshot.


Update at the Crown Nation Forum

Someone by the name Sniglefritz had found our SoL project and asked some questions over at the Crown Nation Forum. My response ended up being fairly large and gives a pretty good summary of our current situation with SoL so I thought I would post a link to the forum so you can all check it out (and ask any follow-up questions!).
