Summerfall Studios has been working tirelessly on hybrid musical-roleplaying game Stray Gods for several years now. With the aid of government funding, and the support of passionate fans on crowdfunding platform Fig, it has evolved from an ambitious Buffy homage to a fully-fledged, fully-voiced adventure backed by the talents of Laura Bailey (The Legend of Vox Machina) and Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (Ghost in the Shell).
That’s not to mention the contributions of Troy Baker (The Last of Us), Austin Wintory (Journey, Aliens: Fireteam Elite), Montaigne (Eurovision 2020, 2021), David Gaider (Dragon Age), Liam Esler, and the entire Summerfall Studios team, which comprises game development talents from Melbourne, and across Australia.
After years of working collaboratively, and remotely throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Summerfall Studios has now announced Stray Gods is on the path to going gold, and will release in 2023.
While an exact release date has not been specific, an announcement to Fig supporters and the public demonstrates a sense of confidence in the upcoming game. Followers and backers have waited patiently for more news of the highly-anticipated title – and it’s finally arrived.
