Rad Studio Projects
Querent - 2018
Querent is a tabletop role playing game by Fat Bird Studios that uses tarot cards to create a narrative-driven and personal experience. Players can use existing tarot cards within a new narrative framework to build characters, worlds, and host an entirely new kind of role-playing. Since working with us as a Rad Studio project during the summer of 2018, the Querent team has grown immensely. They hosted a wildly successful Kickstarter that was funded within the first 2 hours of their posting it, their team has doubled in size, and they just opened their store, where you can pre-order the “Cartomancer’s Tome” as well as a custom tarot deck. We can’t take all the credit for their success - This is a self-motivated team who took it upon themselves to create their own marketing campaigns, brand their product, and really make this game come to life in a big way.

In-House Studio Projects
The first of its kind, Sigiriya is a Sri Lankan fantasy game for mobile. The game tells the age old story of Sigiriya, a giant rock fortress in the Sri-Lankan rainforest that served as a usurper king’s domain for 18 years. You play as the architect of this early society, and you’ve been tasked with making Sigiriya into a societal structure worthy of the new king with the help of your community. The team behind Sigiriya is Rad Magpie’s first in-house studio development team, composed of a diverse crew of developers from a healthy mixture of professional backgrounds.
