Hey there, we’re Parhelion Rift!

It all began in 2017 when we, lovers and fellow computer scientists, decided to channel our lifelong passion for all games analog and digital into creating fantastical, playable experiences of our own. Thus Parhelion Rift was born.

We kicked off by creating our first game, Cats Who Stare At Ghosts, a thorough examination of cat-ghost relationships, disguised in the shape of a game. Now we are embarking on the adventure of building the metroidvania of our dreams, Twofold Tales.

The two of us handle programming the game, creating graphics and audio, removing cats from the keyboatqwertsdrrds, writing updates on social media and much more all by ourselves, enjoying every bit of the ride.
