We’re at the Nordic Games Conference in Malmö in May this year. Drop us a line if you’d like to chat about your game’s story, or just to talk – we’d love to help out.
Giles is giving a talk at the Arcade Vaults event Player Nation on 22nd April. More info on it here – it sounds like a great event, so get out there for a day of gaming!

We’re teaming up with BAFTA Cymru and RPG: Relating Philosophy and Gaming to bring you an event in Cineworld in Cardiff, where we’ll talk about using interactive storytelling methods to evoke horror and other emotions in your audience, and then have a fireside chat – led by a philosopher – exploring the subject in more depth.
We’re taking over one of the screens in Cineworld Cardiff on April 24th at 7pm.
You’re welcome to come along! More info and booking here – and if you’re quick enough off the mark you can use the code ‘cymruguest’ to get a free ticket.
Very pleased to hear today that an edited version of The Bunker – an atmospheric fully live-action adventure we worked on last year – has been accepted into the Cannes film festival as a short film. Really pleased for Splendy Games, and looking forward to hearing how it’s received.
Whoops, we missed this! An early preview article on Raiders of Erda, which we’ve been working on with Cooperative Innovations for a while.
From the article:
High-end VR in its current state was practically built for fantasy combat. There are few things more satisfying on either Vive or Rift today than an intense duel with orcs in Vanishing Realms, or a perfect round in Fruit Ninja VR, but these are admittedly limited experiences. They’re lacking in features that keep us from labeling them as truly complete games that you could lose hours in.
Raiders of Erda could be one of the first such games we sink that much time into.
We’re very pleased to announce that we’re working with Instinct Games, the powerhouse behind Ark: Survival Evolved, on an exciting and yet-to-be-announced project. Can’t wait for you to see it, but it’s early days!
Here’s what they had to say about working with us:
“Talespinners quickly grasped our concept and were immediately able to work it into a captivating and inspirational story. Whenever an issue with the narrative came up, Talespinners were always quick to respond and promptly came up with solutions.” — Mostafa Hafez, CEO
Which was lovely of them! For our part, the project is fantastic and we look forward to playing it!
The Exiled hits Steam on the 23rd – we’ve really enjoyed helping out on the background for this one. Take a look!
Here’s an article on what we’ve been helping them with, and how we’re approaching the project.
