As you journey through the six clan lands, however, you soon discover a terrible curse that has mysteriously transformed the creatures of planet Ailur into mutated, monstrous beasts bent on destruction.

Astral Clocktower Studios is a women-owned \game development studio based in the Northeast US. Founded in 2018 by Alexis Brutman, Tiffany Gomez, and Sarah Schaffstall, the ACS dev team has since grown into a rich and diverse family of 30+ creators hailing from all over the world.
The Astral Clocktower culture and key pillars are centered around celebrating diversity, equality, and inclusion in the traditionally male-dominated gaming space. We encourage an “open door” atmosphere, free from judgement, that celebrates the vast and diverse cultures our team members represent and bring to our family.
We hope to bring a unique voice and fresh perspective to the gaming industry and strive to inspire gamers from all walks of life with diverse and relatable characters, immersive storylines, impactful themes, and smart gameplay mechanics.
The haunting and ethereal original soundtrack for Dark Fantasy Action RPG Kristala is composed by the incredibly talented AdLibPiano, whose beautifully dark and whimsical tracks help bring the world of Ailur to life.
Thanks to the recent success of the Kristala Kickstarter campaign, the game's soundtrack will also now feature new, original work by Winifred Phillips, who's known for her award-winning compositions featured on some of our favorite games, including Assassin's Creed and God of War.
