A long-standing project led by 3 enthusiasts

Started more than 5 years ago by Robin, Arnaud and Romain, “Shadow of the Guild” represents in our eyes a very particular pride. Despite moments of doubt, setbacks and misguided advice, the team had the courage to see this project through to completion.

Merge literature and video games

It all started with Robin Buisson’s book, “La Guilde des Marchands de Pluie”. His idea was to make this cross-media fantasy universe and tell another side of the story of this world. And what could be better than with video games, his other favorite medium.

Prince of Persia & Comics

Wishing to honor one of the games that marked their childhood, the 3 friends undertook the creation of a tribute game to Prince of Persia, but also graphically marked by their passion for comics, which gives this particular artistic direction.

The path to publishing

After quite a few struggles, but never letting up, the team was finally rewarded when publisher Bonus Stage Publishing set its sights on “Shadow of the Guild”. A reward and a happiness, in order to consolidate years of work.
