Studio Deloryan is a creative studio based in Amsterdam. The studio is run by Deloryan Hommers, a gamer girl since the 90’s. Franchises such as The Sims, Rollercoaster Tycoon, and Age of Empires captivated her attention throughout her childhood for the longest time.
It was at age of 7 on her aunt’s breeding farm that she fell in love with horses and learned to ride. She never lost her passion for horses and so when she turned 15 years old, she started working at her aunt’s farm. She created their website and photographed the horses for it too. A few years later, her aunt moved away to a different city, too far away to keep working there and have fun with the horses.
Though she loved horses, all animals actually, they were quite expensive to keep at home. That’s when she discovered pet sim games where she could keep horses without needing a backyard. Finding talent in web design and development, she decided to pursue some studies in the field. In 2012, at the age of 21, she started her studies in Communication & Multimedia Design at the Avans University of Applied Sciences, ‘s-Hertogenbosch.
During her time in school, she found her love for creating games. At the same time, she made a friend on one of the sim games that shared her love and passion for horses and horse games. They both felt the need for a realistic horse sim with a complex and comprehensive genetic system. Thus, the spark for the first game, at Studio Deloryan, was created and Horse Reality came to exist. At the moment we only have one game under our belts, but we cannot wait to create something new!
