Elodie Games, which includes industry veterans from renowned studios such as Riot Games, Blizzard and BioWare, has unveiled Project Skies, its upcoming shareware and cross-play co-op action RPG, in a new press release. In addition, players can now register for Project Skies pre-alpha playtests on PC and mobile platforms.
Project Skies is a League of Legends-inspired game that challenges players to control legendary champions as they explore a colorful and charming world. Featuring an addictive social co-op action-RPG system, the game offers deep progression and replay value, as well as a strong focus on collaboration, offering both casual and competitive modes to build friendships and camaraderie.
Project Skies is also designed to be a fully cross-play experience, using cutting-edge technology and art direction to provide seamless gameplay across all platforms, as well as the ability to save progress across any platform. Other games that have served as inspiration include League of Legends: Wild Rift, World of Warcraft, Lord of the Rings Online, the Mass Effect series, and Dragon Age.
Elodie Games is led by Christina Norman and David Banks, two industry veterans with a wealth of experience and recognition. Norman brings leadership and game design experience honed over 17 years on iconic titles like Mass Effect 1-3 and League of Legends, not to mention her recent role as design director for League of Legends: Wild Rift. Banks, on the other hand, has an impressive track record in both startups and game development as a former League of Legends executive producer at Riot Games.
Other prominent figures from Elodie Games include Adam Gershowitz, an experienced executive producer with over 20 years of experience developing and launching live service games. Most recently, he was Director of Production for Overwatch 1 and 2. Jen Ortiz also has over two decades of experience in game development, e-commerce, manufacturing, and product management, thanks to her extensive experience in MMOs and her previous role as Business Director at NCSOFT West.
It’s worth noting that Project Skies’ playtesting spots will be limited at first, but Elodie Games plans to increase their frequency and size as they develop throughout the year.
