Summerfall Studios

Bioware-veteran David Gaider and former Beamdog developer Liam Esler are joining forces to launch Summerfall Studios.

The Melbourne studio was initially co-founded in October 2018 but was dormant until now. Other than the name, not much is known about Summerfall Studios. However, the studio wrote a post on Twitter, saying it will focus on “character and narrative-driven” games.

Gaider worked for Bioware from 1999 to 2016 while mostly serving as a senior writer on franchises like Dragon Age. Gaider then moved to Beamdog for two years as creative director.

Esler, the second founder and managing director, worked at Beamdog for three years between 2013 and 2016. Esler also played a prominent role helping to organize the Game Connect Asia Pacific, and then bringing the GaymerX event to Australia.

Summerfall Studios is set to announce its first project, which was described as an “illustrated character-driven adventure,” at PAX Australia on October 11. The studio also revealed the game will be partially funded with a Kickstarter campaign.
