What we are working on

Our current pipeline

The software being developed side by side is the Candide Engine and its first title, Farkeep.


An action adventure roleplaying game heavily inspired by games such as Legend of Zelda, Undertale and Hyper Light Drifter. Grab your sword and head out on an adventure in the beautiful world of Kerroan! Explore mystical forests, venture into dark temples, make friends, slay foes and solve puzzles! With a great emphasis on the roleplay, your choices affect both gameplay and story.
