Announcing: The World Next Door, our first original game!


We've been really excited to talk about this for awhile, and we're finally ready to go public! Rose City Games is making 3 original titles and launching a new indie game publishing platform with VIZ Media. We've been long time fans of VIZ's properties, so creating new worlds with them is pretty much a perfect fit!

The original concept for our first game, The World Next Door, started at an internal game jam, based on awesome characters by our friend Lord Gris. Along with her, we've gathered a team of amazing people to work with us on the game:

Corey Warning
Director, Project Lead

Will Lewis

Chris Sumsky
Senior Producer, Software Engineer

Ankit Trivedi
Lead Software Engineer

Justin Baldwin
Art Direction, Game Art & Animation

Lord Gris
Original Concept, Character Designer

Alex Atkins
Lead Writer

Andrew Matteson

Sandra Lanz
Associate Producer

We'll be talking about the game a LOT during development, so keep an eye out (and follow @worldnextdoor_ on Twitter!) And if you're in Portland, we'll definitely be bringing builds out to PIGSquad events for playtesting.

You can check out the full press release for the game and publishing platform here. Stay tuned!
