The Brisbane based game developer and co-founder of Prideful Sloth returns to our Women In Games List for a third consecutive year.
With a passion to doing her part to revive high-quality console development in Australia, it will come as no surprise that much of the last twelve months has been centred around the studio’s debut title, Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles.
The title launched world-wide in July last year, and is available across digital and retail in ten languages, on three platforms, and as a part of two special editions.
Yonder has seen a great deal of success across Asia first receiving the BICFest Grand Prix award in South Korea then the the Tokyo Game Show 2017 Media Award – Indie Division Grand Prize in Japan. It broke into the Top Ten PS4 games in Japan in March this year and is tracking to Top 3 in the Japan Switch eShop sales charts. Globally it was ranked as one of the Best of 2017 New Release on Steam.
Speaking to Develop Pacific about her inclusion in this year’s list, Cheryl said, “It’s wonderful to have been nominated and I appreciate the recognition of the successes we’ve had at Prideful Sloth and with Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles over the past 12 months. ”
