Lithic Entertainment is a small independent game development studio with a mission to create games and experiences that are unique and engaging.
We believe that if a game is crafted with love, then there will be someone to love it. That's why we only strive to make games we would want to play.
Nine years ago on a rainy day, co-founders Andrea Woodford and Alain Bellemare conceived an idea for a game. Naïve and excited, they decided they would start their own game company. The only barrier being that they did not yet possess the skills to make one. Alain (a programmer) and Andrea (an artist) decided they would begin to train and prepare in as many ways as they could to make the dream reality.
Starting with decisions about college programs, purposely selecting courses to build to that end and grabbing any opportunity they believed could prepare them for their goal. They spent years building a repertoire of abilities that could assist them, as well as a collection of their own prototypes, custom engines, and design documents for practice. They also took a variety of jobs that would help them to better understand the different facets (outside of programming and art) to running a game company such as: QA, Technical Support, Customer Service, and Project Management.
When the time was finally right to get serious, they began ideation for the first prototype of their game Dwarrows. With the same head-strong nativity and excitement they set out on the ambitious project. With Dwarrows having been recently greenlit on Steam Greenlight, they aim for a release in the fourth quarter of 2016 for their first game.
