GalaxyTrail is an independent video game development studio from Waterloo, New York. Starting in the year 2007 as a website for Stephen DiDuro's game development portfolio[1], it has become the name of the indie studio, consisting of Stephen, who is working with various freelancers.[2]

It is known for their first full-fledged game, Freedom Planet[3] and is currently working on its sequel, Freedom Planet 2.[4]

History Edit

While living in Denmark during 2009, Stephen and his wife Marianne registered the domain, which at the time, was used for various things. The subadress originally served as Stephen's video game portfolio. An example of his contributions during this time were as an grachic artist for the Xbox Live Arcade game That Really Hot Chick, made by HorrendousGames.[5]

Work on Freedom Planet started in 2011, in form of a Sonic fan game starring Ziyo Ling's fan character, Sash Lilac. During the production of the project, Stephen moved back to his old home in Waterloo, New York. The Kickstarter, meant to raise money to polish the game and publishing it on multiple platforms, ran from January 16th, 2013 to February 15th, 2013, and raised over $25,000.
