AboutPoem Studios started in the summer of 2015 in Atlanta, GA with a game modification overhaul project. The team rose from one person, to twelve members at one point, stretched across the globe. Some members came and went depending on the demands of the project. Unfortunately the project was disbanded in late 2018.
However, a core group of artists and developers went on to form the team that makes up Poem Studios today; with their new project; The Missing; which started production in January of 2019.
We believe in deep immersion game worlds and strive to make the experience a cocktail of passion and intrigue, spiked with a bit of weirdness for better or for worse.
As of now Poem Studios is dedicated to open world, narrative intense, role playing games; with colorful casts, strange stories, and engaging game play. While we are limited by several factors we have ambitions and drive to keep making the kind of games we would like to play. We pride ourselves on being a progressive and ethical game studio that puts story and players first.
Here is a look at our previous projects and what we are currently working on, this section with its details are subject to change and some data might be in the process of being updated, if you are members of the press you can look below at our contact section to reach out to us for specifics.
