15 Years of Stronghold

It seems like only yesterday that The Boy, aided by his faithful counsellor Sir Longarm, rose up against The Wolf and his evil henchmen. A decade and a half has now passed since Stronghold was first released in stores and since then we have besieged both famous and fictional castles together in medieval Europe, the Crusades-era Middle East and Arthurian kingdoms.

We’re currently hard at work on what comes next for the saga. Namely bringing the series to mobile this year, remastering another old favourite for Steam in the form of Stronghold 2 in 2017 and of course the next main instalment in the series. However we just wanted to take a moment out to say…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY STRONGHOLD! Continue reading

Firefly Runs London 10k

We’re running for charity and YOU can help!

We first met the incredible people at SpecialEffect in 2012 and have been working with them ever since. So as part of our now yearly tradition four brave souls from Firefly Studios are running in the British London 10k for the charity, which improves quality of life for people living with disabilities. We feel strongly about the rehabilitation, mental well-being and self-esteem of those SpecialEffect work with on a daily basis, using heavily customised controllers, eye-tracking software and other innovative tools to broaden the accessibility and inclusiveness of gaming beyond fully able-bodied individuals.

Still not convinced? Then watch this.

In the past we’ve run as female Street Fighter characters (our best year) and Power Rangers (not the most comfortable costume). This year? Pac-Man (Stephen) will be chasing famous videogame ghosts Blinky (Tom), Inky (Nick) and Clyde (Anthony)!

Help us achieve our fundraising goal by visiting the below fundraising site and leaving a donation. Every little helps 🙂
