Press / Business contact:
Oxeye Game Studio is based in Stockholm, Sweden. We make games! :)
Oxeye Game Studio was founded 2004 in Lund, Sweden, by Jens Bergensten, Daniel Brynolf, Alexander Persson, Daniel Estephan, Jacob Kindstedt and Jonas Johnsson. As of 2017 the studio consists of Jens Bergensten, Daniel Brynolf and Pontus Hammarberg and is based in Stockholm, Sweden.DaisyMoon
In 2004 we started the development of our own engine called “Daisy”. Daisy started its life as an adaption of the open source engine “Irrlicht” (version 0.7) modified to suit our needs, the largest task being adding the support for the development of 2D games.
After the release of “Harvest Massive Encounter” we added Lua support to Daisy to be able to create mods for the game. This evolved into a prototyping engine named “DaisyMoon”, which quickly became a full fledged Lua based game engine of its own.
Today, we use DaisyMoon in all of our development. Even though our game Cobalt and its spinoff Cobalt WASD runs on Autodesk’s Stingray engine, the core development of the games and the associated editors still use DaisyMoon.
Strategist is a story driven, turn based strategy game and was Oxeye’s first release. The IP was sold and the game is therefore no longer supported by Oxeye or available for purchase.Dawn Of Daria
Dawn Of Daria was a “MMOFL” (an online, massively multiplayer, fantasy life) inspired by “Whispers In Akarra”, a game founded by Jens Bergensten before the inception of Oxeye and also the meeting ground for him, Daniel Brynolf and Pontus Hammarberg. The goal of Dawn Of Daria was to focus on the experience of the game, where number crunching took a backseat to roleplaying. The game was discontinued due to the scope being too large for the studio at the time.Harvest: Massive Encounter
Harvest Massive Encounter is an RTS with tower defence elements and unique resource management mechanics. An early prototype of the game won 2nd place at the 2007 Swedish Game Awards, which led to the development and release of the full game in 2008. The game focuses on base building and is known for the absurd amount of enemies the player has to fend off.Cobalt
Cobalt is an action oriented 2D platformer featuring cute little cyborgs running and fighting in local multiplayer, online and in an extensive story mode. The game started as a re-imagining of a prototype developed by Daniel Brynolf but saw several major changes of direction during its long development phase. Cobalt also lay the grounds for the co-operation and friendship between Oxeye Game Studio and Mojang AB.Cobalt WASD
Cobalt WASD is a reimagining of Cobalt, with a single gamemode focused on competitive multiplayer action. To learn more, visit the press page of Cobalt WASD.
