Foundation[edit | edit source]

Solid Clouds was established in 2013 by co-founders Stefán Gunnarsson, a recent graduate in computer science from Reykjavík University, and Stefán Þór Björnsson of Íslandsbanki. Gunnarson sought to develop what he perceived as a potentially untapped market within games, a combination of 4X games like Civilization and Master of Orion with the Massively multiplayer online real-time strategy game experience of games like Travian. Solid Clouds has secured both private and public funding in its foundational years with the largest round in January of 2018.[4]

Awards and recognition[edit | edit source]

Solid Clouds was selected for the Nordic Showcase 2016 at the annual Slush conference.[5] Development of Starbone has received favorable coverage by video game press for its sixth[6] and seventh[7] alpha development rounds.
