Stegosoft Games is a small, independent video game studio that focuses on 16-bit era RPGs.


Early history

Stegosoft Games was originally formed with the intention of producing and releasing Operation: PROPHET and the Frost game development engine. O:P was a side-scrolling space shoot'em up with dynamic mission design, and an emphasis on collecting artifacts for research. The game was being developed alongsode the Frost engine, which was meant to combine the ease of use of some game development engines with the power of others. Unfortunately, this was far too ambitious a project for our 3-person team. The project was abandoned. A day later, we decided to start work on Ara Fell.

Ara Fell

Ara Fell was a pet project of mine for many years, but I lacked the skill to pull it together as a complete game. Once Operation: PROPHET was abandoned, I opened it up again for the first time in years. I forgot how much I loved it once. It was rough. It needed a lot of work. But it reminded me of why I love doing this. I decided that if this was the project I had always wanted to work on, then that's what I should do. Ara Fell was reborn in May of 2015. We've spent countless hours on it since then, rewriting every line of dialogue, reworking all the dungeons, rebalancing the combat, adding new systems, graphics, music and sounds.

Rise of the Third Power

Rise of the Third Power began as a hobby project in 2006, but was abandoned when its author left for college. The pleasantly unexpected success of Ara Fell has shown there is a demand for games such as this. Shortly after Ara Fell’s release, work began on the much larger and more ambitious completion of Rise of the Third Power.
