About the Company

ArtCraft Entertainment is a start-up independent game development shop located in Austin, Texas.  Founded by J. Todd Coleman (creative director, Shadowbane, Wizard101, Pirate101) and Gordon Walton (executive producer, Ultima Online, Star Wars Galaxies, Star Wars the Old Republic) the company employs a world-class cadre of artists, designers and engineers – a small team that includes some of the most experienced MMO developers on the planet.

In early 2015, ArtCraft announced their flagship title, Crowfall®, a hybrid massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) and large-scale strategy game.  Heavily inspired by “Game of Thrones”, Crowfall allows players to take the roles of knight and merchants, king and queens vying for control of a virtual throne.

The Kickstarter campaign for Crowfall ended on March 26th of 2015, amassing almost $1.8 million in pledges and ranking as the largest video game Kickstarter in the previous 12 months – and the 15th largest, ever, with total funding listed here.   The game continues to gain attention (and accept pledges) directly on www.crowfall.com

ArtCraft Entertainment, Inc. is an equal opportunity employer.
