Stormcloud Creations is an independent computer game development company founded by Derek DiBenedetto. Stormcloud games are mainly in the strategy and simulation genres, giving the player an immersive gaming experience. The company was founded with a small capital of $100, and its games were later published by Shrapnel Games. The founder began the company almost on a whim, though he had then been toying with the thought of creating his own games. Eventually, after a couple of false starts, he published his first official game under Stormcloud Creations.
Of course, getting independently-made games off the ground was somewhat difficult, especially in the late nineties to early noughties. Stormcloud Creations initially struggled with the sales of their games, partially because of insufficient marketing. However, the games eventually gained traction among audiences and sold thousands of copies in less than a year.
