Somnium Games is a small indie game development team from Croatia. They are currently working on Inked, a puzzle platformer set on a drawing paper.
HistoryBefore Somnium Games
Having met in 2013, Edi Ferhatović and Matej Orlić started making games in 2014. The decision was to make smaller mobile games which would serve as a learning process. One had knowledge of graphical design, the other had programming skills. Soon after, they were joined by Barbara Grđan who was also a programmer. Together they made more games and also participated in general application development contests to hone their team skills. Even though the mobile games were met with limited success, the team felt ready for more ambitious projects, and decided to move on to PC and console games.Somnium and The Road
Mid 2015 the trio settled on a name for their studio and Somnium Games was born. A transition process began where the team started learning how to make 3D games. Development training was done on a concept game codenamed Rune, which they hope to come back to and turn into an actual game one day. They picked The Road among several ideas for their first project. The Road is a psychological horror game with a goal of going back to the roots of the genre. Soon after presenting The Road on Reboot Infogamer 2015 it was apparent that the team needed expansion. After sporadically working with several people the studio finally welcomed Lovro Golac and Lovro Vukić as a duo of composers.Inked
Just two weeks before Reboot Develop 2016 in April, the team decided to make a prototype of a game called Inked, which was originally concieved months before but passed on in favour of The Road. The prototype proved to be a success, as it received positive feedback and was nominated in the category of Special selection on the conference. It was then decided to put The Road on hold, and to direct all the energy and time into developing Inked.
There are far more images available for Somnium Games, but these are the ones we felt would be most useful to you. If you have specific requests, please do contact us!
