Historical Recap


The studio was formed by Glenn Winkelmann Jr during 2009-2011, after development began on a Lovecraftian Horror/Adventure mod for Crysis 1 called "The Worry of Newport," with help in cut-scene direction by then-member Jason Daysh. After the successful release of the final iteration at the end of that year, the studio was split to approach projects bilaterally because Glenn/Jason couldn't agree on the direction to take. Sapience, a science fiction modification for Crysis 2 helmed by Jason, and Triptych, a Lovecraftian horror mod for Crysis 1 helmed by Glenn, were conceived. During this period a few more integral members joined -- Marten Basjes, designer of their studio logo, and Viktor Balázs, who helped Jason construct the levels of Sapience before joining Crytek itself.

Throughout the following years Sapience was eventually cancelled and Jason, Marten and Viktor all left the mod studio. Glenn -- and Triptych, still in construction off the back of the 2011 pitch -- became the sole project and designer left. It was finally released in March, 2017 with countless drafts and iterations co-written by Ian Wiese, who joined solely for Triptych.

Following the release of Triptych in 2017, Glenn (as the only member left) focused on the creation of one final modification in Lovecraftian horror, this time for Amnesia. A sizeable team was recruited, which fluctuated rapidly in number, until finally settling on a core group (Glenn, Petr, Nick) that completed The Shadow of the Ramlord in a little over a year development cycle. It released to critical acclaim for programming, writing quality, level design and atmosphere but -- like the others -- was criticized for limited game play or outright horror.

After a decade in video game modification, the studio was shut down on February 11th, 2019.
