Fox Tor Games is composed of an enthusiastic core team of two. We are Jenny Hide – Game Designer and Programmer – and Gwenhyver Davies – Scriptwriter. We have previously worked together on other projects, and are now working together more officially under the umbrella of Fox Tor Games. We are working on Cultivate: Before Time, a single player twee farming adventure about a quaint village transported back in time, and its inhabitants learning to adjust to life in their new prehistoric setting.
The player is invited to explore the quaint village, prehistoric terrain, rugged moorland and mysterious caves in search of resources, tools and knowledge, learning to cultivate their land and survive in another time. Along the way, the player forges friendships, tames dinosaurs and crafts useful items, all while solving mysteries.
Jenny has been a freelance Game Programmer and Designer for over 4 years, and is currently working on General Interactive Co.'s new game Chinatown Detective Agency. It's an adventure/mystery/management game. You're a private detective in Singapore in the year 2032, hunting down a serial killer, but you also have to run your business. It's an homage to Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego? It's voice-acted, featured around 50 locations in Singapore and around the world, and the soundtrack sounds like Trent Reznor scoring a Twin Peaks movie.
Jenny has also previously worked on Terroir, a winemaking tycoon game for General Interactive Co. Jenny’s other projects can be found on her website jenmakesgames.com. Prior to working in the field of game design, Jenny worked as a Software Developer and as a Physicist at various universities, researching Quantum Information Theory – an area in which she has a PhD.
After gaining her degree in Philosophy from the University of Durham, Gwenhyver turned her attention to writing short and feature films, and now adds game writing to her entertainment-creating arsenal. Gwenhyver’s writing successes include placing in the finals of the Austin Film Festival and the semifinals of the Nicholl Fellowship (twice!). In addition to this, she has won various writing competitions, including the International Screenwriters Festival and the American Gem Literary Festival. Gwenhyver is the founder and organiser of the South West Screenwriters’ and Storytellers’ Group, and more information on her credits and writing missions can be found on her website gwenhyver.com.
Most recently, Gwen has been working on General Interactive Co.'s new game Chinatown Detective Agency, as well as writing a short film for VR, and writing a novel thanks to Arts Council England funding.
