Zurich, Switzerland - March 10th, 2023 - Stray Fawn Studio, the indie game studio behind ‘The Wandering Village’ has just announced that they will be branching out into indie game publishing. Alongside the announcement they also revealed the first game in their publishing lineup: Earth of Oryn, a city-builder/strategy game with a medieval setting, set to launch into Steam Early Access in 2024.

Since its establishment in 2016, Stray Fawn Studio has developed and self-published three games in the simulation and strategy genres. ‘The Wandering Village’, the most recent addition to the studio’s portfolio, has sold over 200'000 copies since its Steam Early Access release in September 2022. According to Philomena Schwab, Stray Fawn Studios Co-Founder and lead of their newly established publishing branch, this was just the push they needed to go into publishing: “I’ve been wanting to do this for many years now, but we never really had the extra resources needed to do so. Now we can finally get started and support other devs on their journey. We’re hoping to create a transparent, understanding publisher where partners can benefit from each other and grow together.”
In the case of Earth of Oryn, Stray Fawn had jumped in to help Edouard Libion, a solo-dev from Belgium, when he hit a tough spot during the Kickstarter campaign for his game. Together, they brought the campaign back on track and finally surpassed the initial funding goal. After the campaign, they decided to continue working together.
