Description

Abyssal Arts is an international indie game house headed by Keaton White. Its members share a love of games and whiskey, and so after much considered thought and a coin flip between a distillery and a game house, they went with the thing they actually knew how to do.

History

Origin Story

Abyssal Arts was formed for love. Keaton left his job as a production manager at Capcom Japan so he could be with the love of his life after years of being on different continents. Applying lessons learned at Capcom, he gathered a team of like-minded friends, and together, they formed Abyssal Arts to pursue their passion: making games. Now accompanied by fellow dreamers Ryan Becker, Moira Katson, Jon Slabaugh, and Grant Barber, they are hard at work building City of the Shroud, a tactical fighting game with a community-driven story.

Present Day

Abyssal Arts will be releasing City of the Shroud in Summer 2018.
