Indie Studio Breaks Through English Language Barrier with Therian Saga

Therian-Saga-Logo-MediumAfter attending the Montreal International Game Summit last fall, I started working with an interesting indie studio based out of Quebec City called Virtys. A handful of RPG superfans, the Virtys team had been working for years on their complex browser-based MMO, Fatecraft. With French being their primary language, the game released in French in the summer of 2013 with much interest  – over 50,000 players (a great starting community for an indie game). After experiencing this success, the studio decided that they wanted to branch out and start working on an English-language version of the game and with a new name – Therian Saga.

Well, they just launched their English-language open beta with my PR help last week! Hundreds of accounts have already been created in just a couple days, and it continues to grow. We’ve seen some decent press coverage surrounding the game thus far, and many more interested in meeting up with the team at PAX East in April and beyond. We’ll be formally launching the English version later this spring!

Some snapshots at coverage from the past week follows below. To play and stay tuned on the game’s progression visit www.TherianSaga.com.
