Kickstarter & History
In 2011, contact was first made with Brian Jacques for a “small mobile game” that would accompany another project.
While initially the first game was scheduled for a Fall 2012 release, financial concerns called for the recruitment of a new partner.
In April 2013, Soma Games became involved with the project, and launched a Kickstarter with the goal of raising $11,000 for a Minecraft map of Redwall Abbey. The project officially achieved complete funding on the evening of May 6, and by the campaign's end on May 26, $17,618 was contributed. Out of a list of bonus locations, Saint Ninian's was unlocked after the campaign received $16,000. With the addition of funds raised via PayPal, Gingivere's Farm also became an in-map place. Originally, Soma stated that summer 2014 would be the release time for the game. The Minecraft map, AbbeyCraft, was released on August 9, 2013.
In July 2017, it was revealed that the games would consist of an "episodic mini-series" that would "tell the story of three reluctant heroes who each find themselves inside Redwall Abbey for deeply personal reasons when it is besieged by Cluny the Scourge. Thrust into a suddenly dramatic situation the three strangers become fast friends and wind up in a critical, but as-yet unsung role in the events that bring the sword of Martin the Warrior to Matthias and the end to that villain Cluny the Scourge."
At the time, three episodes were announced, "The Scout," which would feature a mouse character; and "The Miner" and "The Archer", which would feature a mole and a squirrel. In December 2017, a fourth episode, "The Pirate", was announced, which was to involve all three previous characters uniting, as well as feature Cluny the Scourge.
As of 2021, The Miner, The Archer, and The Pirate are no longer planned for development, and The Scout was divided into three different "acts" or games. Two mobile games are currently the key focus, Feasts & Friends and The Lost Legends of Redwall (app).
The Lost Legends of Redwall Games
Described as a "stealth-adventure game", The Scout is the story of a young mouse warrior-in-training who is forced to flee to Redwall Abbey when the Mossflower Woods village of Lilygrove is attacked by Scumsnout the Wearet and his crew of sea rats. Act I consists of five levels.
"The events of The Scout play out along the ancient, but now altered, course of the mighty River Moss. What was once a wide river is now the sunken bed of a seasonal creek that that runs east-west between Redwall Abbey and the Great South Stream that feeds the swamps south and east of Salamandastron. The player must find a way through the confusing snow-covered channel punctuated by occasional hedgerows, ancient stone walls, scattered shacks, and the few-and-far-between hearths of friendly woodlanders."
The game was officially released on September 14, 2018.
Described as a "conversational adventure game," Escape the Gloomer features the tale of a young otter member of Skipper Warthorn's crew, Gillig, who pursues Verdauga Greeneyes' lost Scroll of Inheritance, the recovery of which could prevent the Great Mossflower War by revealing his heir.
The story plays out parallel to the events of Mossflower. It is entirely text-based.
The game was officially released on November 16, 2018, and is a collaboration between Soma Games and Scott Adams' Clopas LLC.
A "Puzzle-Adventure" follow-up to The Scout; Sophia and Liam are directed to visit Winsome Wraith, the home of healer stoats who could help Liam. Along the way, they rescue the residents of Lilygrove from sea rats. Act II has six levels.
The game was officially released on April 30, 2021.
A mobile "interactive fiction" game consisting of multiple narratives, including The Wildcat Scroll, The Flowers of Icetor, and Caverns of Kotir. The game was officially released on November 21, 2021.
The puzzle-adventure follow-up to The Scout Act II; Sophia and Liam trek towards Redwall Abbey, where Liam could finally receive a cure for his wounds. They must escape Cheesethief and his sea rats if they hope to arrive safely. Act III has six levels.
The game was officially released on December 24, 2021.
A mobile cooking game. Scheduled release: 2022.
Scheduled release: Unknown.
