Description

Silverstring Media is a new media design and production company in Vancouver, BC. We are storytellers and game designers, writers and architects. We believe in pushing the boundaries of digital media, interactive experiences, and what it means to be a game. We are dedicated to experimentation in form and content, and in bringing diversity to our stories and culture.

History

Early history

Silverstring Media was founded by writer and transmedia designer Lucas J.W. Johnson, who co-produced the kids adventure game The Time Tribe and created the experimental project Azrael's Stop. In 2013, he partnered with Claris Cyarron to transform the studio into something more. Silverstring Media has designed the story and narrative content for IndieCade and IGF nominated games Extrasolar (from Lazy 8 Studios) and Crypt of the Necrodancer (from Brace Yourself Games), and produced several of their own experimental games through 2013-2014, including critically-acclaimed and CVA finalist Glitchhikers.

Awards & Recognition


    Selected Articles

    • "Silverstring Media is the kind of game company that doesn’t call itself one – they prefer to think of themselves as “story designers” who also make games. They are committed to experimenting with new ways of making interactive experiences, and they have come up with some truly unique concepts. They are living proof that you don’t need to kowtow to the big players in the industry to make your dreams come to life."
      - Alice Percy, Gamer-XP
    • "No shortlist of new talent to work with in digital media would be complete without Silverstring Media on it."
      - Brian Clark, GMD Studios
    • "...one of transmedia’s independent visionaries."
      - Jeff Gomez, Starlight Runner Entertainment
