Cratel Studios is an independent game studio founded, by Chris and C.S. Cratel, when they made a pact with an old god in exchange for a good video game idea.
Cratel Studios was founded in 2017 directly after the idea for Court of Ashes was conceived. From the outset, Chris and C.S. decided that they wanted to create narrative-driven experiences that both rewards player's intelligence and emphasizes quality over quantity of features. In order to accomplish this lofty goal, Chris left his job as an aviation logistician and international trade compliance coordinator in order to run Cratel Studios full-time. C.S. remains in his professional fields of software engineering and product management and contributes to Cratel Studios part-time, primarily in technical and design capacities.
Since 2017, Chris and C.S. have worked to create Court of Ashes. Remaining true to their ideals of quality, the two have created three concepts of Court of Ashes, of varying degrees of functionality and polish, before extracting the most successful features and discarding the rest. Currently, Court of Ashes is on its fourth iteration and scheduled for release in October of 2019.
