Tearcell Game Studio is an endeavor by a group of long-standing friends who wish to contribute to the rich texture and variety of the modern game marketplace. Our debut title, Somnipathy, will be available on Steam with a demo coming late September 2022 and release targeted for Q1 2023.
HistoryEarly history, 20??-Spring 2022
Our founder and leader Darius has been a professional programmer and habitual gamer for his entire adult life. In late 2019, he set himself a challenge: write a small game each month for a year. This snowballed into a group of us participating in a number of game jams, culminating in our participation in Ludum Dare 50 in April 2022. In LD50 we created a point-and-click survival thriller styled as "Somnipathy: Don't Fall Asleep". After the jam, we wanted to continue working on the concept and turn it into a full narrative point-and-click adventure horror game...June 2022-Present
With our goal in mind, we started to take neccessary steps to become a self-publishing developer on Steam. We founded our company and began development in earnest. Our first alpha trailer including re-worked gameplay went live in August 2022, and we will be participating in Steam's Indie Next Fest in October 2022. Our demo will go live as part of that process on September 22, 2022. If you'd like to learn more about the history of Tearcell Games, we have a longer form writeup of our history including information on our pre-formation game jam productions in the Additional Links section of this presskit.
