Norsfell is a video game studio based in Montreal, QC. Our team of designers, artists and programmers works every day towards accomplishing one objective: building replayable multiplayer experiences for fanatics all over the world.
As avid gamers ourselves, we fundamentally believe that crafting modern experiences we want to play is the best way to move the industry forward. This lofty goal leads us to the continuous exploration of new gameplay and the development of player-centric designs.
This is why building a relationship with our players is as important to us as connecting them together in a meaningful way. Forging engaging global experiences on cutting edge devices is more than just a mission: it’s an epic quest where high quality content is king!
Like the great Vikings back in the days, the team was founded by Europeans who sailed over the oceans to settle in North America with one dream in mind: to make a living from their passion. The team was founded by Julian Maroda (Minister of Creation), Arnaud Contri (Minister of Art) and Régis Cajet (Minister of Development) in 2012.
We released our first game, FromPulse, in October 2012, a story-driven retro rhythmical platformer. Discover the rich universe of groovy music creatures in their battle against chaotic forces disrupting the harmony of their planet. In search of a long lost magical artifact, you impersonate the young Vegah in departure for Earth. Do you have what it takes to travel through time and bring back the powerful item?
In November 2013, the team expanded with the financial help of Execution Labs to become Norsfell, the “Hyper Chilling Ground”. Not long after, Benjamin Jouan (Minister of Progress) joined the team.
Our second game, WinterForts: Exiled Kingdom, is a new kind of strategic castle-building game where you control a group of exiled warriors in search of revenge against the treacherous Horde. Craft the layout of your fort, send your workers into the wild, harvest meat from dead dragons, join one of eight Houses and raise an army of archers, beasts and undeads to fight in revolutionary battles inspired by tower defense games.
