We are known for cutting-edge experimental projects, and we apply the lessons we've learned from our own productions to help clients succeed. We have worked with many companies to help develop their games and stories into high-quality, award-winning projects. Whether you want to inject your game with award-winning story writing, build a fully integrated interactive experience from the ground up, or just need help designing of a single piece of content, Silverstring Media does it.
It all starts with a design jam. This is where great concepts are forged into great projects. Bring us to your design table for an hour to give your project that extra spark -- an affordable introduction to working with Silverstring's core talent.
Then, let us help you take your project to the next level. Whether you have a specific problem to solve or story to write, a game design element isn't quite meshing, your dialogue needs tightening, or you need a full design document, story bible, application, or complete production, including location-based games, transmedia, VR, and narrative videogames, we can help you make your vision the best project it can be.
Our services tend to come in two forms: as a studio, we can develop games with you or provide specific services like story bibles, scripts, game design documents, or ongoing design and directorial support; as a consultancy, we can help provide ongoing creative brainstorming, architectural expertise, and diversity consulting.
