Can you tell me about the studio behind this game?
Spearhead Games is a small 15 people Montreal-based independent studio. The studio’s first title, cooperative action puzzler Tiny Brains for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PC, followed the antics of four super-powered lab animals in their quest to escape a mad scientist’s nefarious tests. The studio’s next game has been a competitive physics based video game named Arena Cyber Evolution (ACE), available as a Free-To-Play on Steam. The studios last game was an award winning narrative experience called Stories: The path of Destinies. You play a clever rogue fox Reynardo in a madcap epic fantasy where you have fateful choices to make to either win his war or screw up in dozens of way and destroy everything.

Not exactly, but there are some RPG concepts in the game, such as interactive story, Level up, and character upgrades.
I love random loot, is there random loot?
No, we want the players to make conscious decisions about how they build and upgrade their characters. We’re all about choices and consequences.
What was the inspiration for the art style?
Our art director is also a published graphic novel author/illustrator, so there is a lot of inspiration from various graphic novels and manga. Most notably Blacksad, by Juan Diaz Canales and Juanjo Guarnido.
Why did you go with anthropomorphic animals?
As an indie studio, we’re not going to go hyper-realistic and details. Our style is more about symbolism and expressiveness. Animal characters are much more expressive in a glance. They have a distinctive silhouette even from afar, and inherently project character traits and personality.
