Simpson says, “It’s sort of like a TV drama in video game format. Film was something I was really interested in growing up and thought I might go into that. This is sort of a cross section of that.” Their just-released trailer for Artic Awakening is their most ambitious game yet, an episodic adventure that had the gaming community fired up during its international reveal at the Future Games Show. James says as far as he knows, GoldFire is the only full-time game studio in Oklahoma City, and this OKC native hopes GoldFire’s success will inspire the local game design scene to level up.
“I always say that games are the ultimate art form. It is the intersection of all the different art forms in one sort of unique medium,” said Simpson. His world-building game design is like art. Think pixels instead of paint.
GoldFire’s fourth game could be considered their fifth symphony. So instead of trying to beat the boss, James became his own boss when he started GoldFire Studios in 2008.
James says they’re hoping to launch Artic Awakening in a little over a year, and it will be available on PC, PlayStation and Xbox. “We try to promote that we’re doing this from Oklahoma City. We get messages all the time from students or other people that are just interested in game development that are excited that there are people doing this here.”
