Welcome to MetaMorph, an original title from Firefly Studios’ new ‘Firefly Labs’ team releasing this year on Early Access. A strategic dungeon crawler that rewards character switching, elemental counters and crowd control, MetaMorph challenges you to best a series of increasingly difficult dungeons filled with fire imps, vengeful wisps and hulking golems. These things are all trying to kill you. Good luck!
It seems like only yesterday that The Boy, aided by his faithful counsellor Sir Longarm, rose up against The Wolf and his evil henchmen. A decade and a half has now passed since Stronghold was first released in stores and since then we have besieged both famous and fictional castles together in medieval Europe, the Crusades-era Middle East and Arthurian kingdoms.
We’re currently hard at work on what comes next for the saga. Namely bringing the series to mobile this year, remastering another old favourite for Steam in the form of Stronghold 2 in 2017 and of course the next main instalment in the series. However we just wanted to take a moment out to say…
HAPPY BIRTHDAY STRONGHOLD! Continue reading →
Where will YOU be when gamers and devs from around the globe descend on the world’s largest gaming expo? In a shocking turn of events, Firefly will once again be in attendance! We’re travelling to Germany next week with exciting Stronghold news, trailers, and builds of our games. For the first time we will also be revealing exactly the same footage and information to players as we will be with the gaming press.
Paul, Nick and Pascal from Firefly are (nearly) ready to travel to Gamescom next week, bringing with them a touching (sorry) gameplay experience in the form of Stronghold Kingdoms on mobile and two separate pieces of new, exciting news for the Stronghold community. If you spot one of our three Firefly knights please grab them! You could be the first to experience Stronghold Kingdoms on mobile and find out what our other cool news is.
Gamescom 2016 will have something for PC and mobile fans alike – for both new and veteran fans – so watch out for announcements and online community events next week!
We’re running for charity and YOU can help!
We first met the incredible people at SpecialEffect in 2012 and have been working with them ever since. So as part of our now yearly tradition four brave souls from Firefly Studios are running in the British London 10k for the charity, which improves quality of life for people living with disabilities. We feel strongly about the rehabilitation, mental well-being and self-esteem of those SpecialEffect work with on a daily basis, using heavily customised controllers, eye-tracking software and other innovative tools to broaden the accessibility and inclusiveness of gaming beyond fully able-bodied individuals.
Still not convinced? Then watch this.
In the past we’ve run as female Street Fighter characters (our best year) and Power Rangers (not the most comfortable costume). This year? Pac-Man (Stephen) will be chasing famous videogame ghosts Blinky (Tom), Inky (Nick) and Clyde (Anthony)!
Help us achieve our fundraising goal by visiting the below fundraising site and leaving a donation. Every little helps 🙂
