Formed in 2012, Rising Sun Studios is an independant software house, creating games and stories with an incredibly distinctive art style. At present, both Dawn of the Ronin, a highly-anticipated samurai slasher, and EX-CELESTIUM, a space-operatic RPG are in-the-works for both PC, Nintendo Switch and other platforms.
Originating from a single bedroom, Rising Sun Studios founder, James Watton, began writing games as a child on his parents Commodore 64, progressing through basic, java and eventually landing on C# with the XNA framework from Microsoft.
James has always desired to spend his days creating software for a living. Besides working a full-time job writing software for the broadcast and entertainment industry, James can be found either working on new projects, or walking the company mascot - Bailey.
