Fairystone - A beautiful sandbox game full of life, bricks and magic. 3 years of dev!



Dear All,

My name is Olivier DENIS and to celebrate the ten years of our indy studio - odenis studio, I'm happy to present FairyStone.

In short, it's a sandbox game. If, at first, the minecraft reference seems natural, the enchanting and magical universe makes it unique in its kind. There is a lot of game references in it, populous by example and even our old characters of Pop Island are here !

Fairystone has been written like a love letter for a little girl - my girl. I would like to have a game that we can share and explore together. A game that gives her the opportunity to express his creativity.

It’s peaceful, positive and beautiful and you can do so much with it. Construct your home, invite fairies and create an incredible ecosystem full of life and magic. Truly, there is no limits for your imagination : you could compose music, create a castle, fly like a bird and so much more.

Like our previous app "Fish & Shark" on the apple store ( > 400.000 downloads ), the graphics and sound engines are a demonstration of the power of an iPad or iPhone ( 60 fps and raycasting for people who understand this obscure language). The Artificial Intelligence also contributes to fulfill this universe of life - it's really surprising, you'll see that.

The touch interface is one of the best asset and has been designed from the beginning for ipad and iphone. It makes the difference.

The app will cost at launch 2.99 euros / dollars and then 5.99. The game is released the 25th June.

There are three years of works behind this game. Three years of works and a little girl.
We hope you will enjoy it.

----

Looks gorgeous.

My (6yo) daughter will really like this!

Is there multiplayer? That would be one thing she would miss from MC:PE as we usually play together...

Thank you. You can do a lot of things of course construct your kingdom, brick by brick ( or better as you will see soon). In the quick tuto just posted, you can see that you can create music, construct ride and play with it. But the main idea should be around the ecosystem. When you are inviting fairies they will start to add a lot of things in your world. And everything will interact with everything. Some fairies will plant trees, some will raise eagle to help other fairies in their work. Some will raise fish and some other sharks - and everything will play together. Quickly you will be in a living world.
