Stray Bombay is a new studio in Seattle made up of industry vets making cooperative games. When Stray Bombay first started out they had the impressive goal of shipping a game with crossplay on five client platforms with a team of only a handful of engineers. The Anacrusis is a four-player, cooperative first-person shooter set aboard a massive starship stranded at the edge of explored space. In order to achieve their goal for The Anacrusis, Stray Bombay needed a backend.
After implementing AccelByte’s services, Stray Bombay has:
- Simultaneously launched The Anacrusis with a cross-platform play on five platforms: Steam, Epic Game Store, and Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows 10.
- Made The Anacrusis available as part of Xbox Game Pass.
- Taken full advantage of direct data ownership to shape the future of the game.
