We recently had a chance to visit Airship Syndicate in Austin to play its upcoming game, Darksiders: Genesis, spend some time with the team, and tour its new studio. Genesis will be the studio’s second game after Battle Chasers: Nightwar and since founding the studio to develop that game, it has already upgraded its facilities multiple times.
The entrance to the studio features a huge Battle Chasers murals and a detailed statue of Death with light-up eyes.
Most of the meeting rooms have fun(?) names like “Harm’s Way”.
The assorted art in the studio is split between Battle Chasers and Darksiders.
This is the break room/kitchen. Dogan, the innkeeper and vendor from Battle Chasers: Nightwar is on the wall, but there is also a wall filled with collected art and posters from the staff.
The actual development floor features people working on computers, if you can imagine that, but you will also find a cool backlit metal version of the studios’ logo gifted to the team by a Kickstarter backer. There is also a big garage door that can be opened in the back. It happened to be raining the day I visited.
While visiting, we got Darksiders artist and Airship Syndicate co-founder Joe Madureira to sign our Darksiders 2 copy of the issue. He also drew a picture of Death on it. We’ll be auctioning off for charity during our annual Extra Life charity live stream later this year.
