From moving back and forward across county to finding work post-grad to facing two lay offs within the gaming industry, Edwin Jack founded BareHand in 2014 within Lawrence, Massachusetts. Edwin formed an alliance with his teammates Kris Carter, Nicholas Biondi, Charlie Mauck, and R. J. DuBois to become the independent game studio working on Cede.
Cede is a 3D Action-RPG combining the best experiences of Diablo and Harvest Moon farming, modernized by a unique mechanic "Combat Farming"
Combat Farming in a post-apocalyptic universe. Conflict between brothers has cracked your planet into pieces with barely any crops and plants to survive from. Our main character Seph and his Lil Boi's combine their abilities through Combat Farming in which monsters are burst into seeds becoming vegetation. This vegetation can assist you in combat in various ways. One plant grown may fire projectiles at enemies while another plant increases your speed. Seph's Lil Boi's all have Combat Farming abilities that can level up your plants making them stronger thus making you stronger in combat.
“Cede” is a Combat Farming Game in a Post Apocalyptic Universe where Seph, after the death of his father and the betrayal of his five brothers to govern and protect the worlds crumbles, it is up to him and his Lil Boi’s to restore order to all of the regions that remain of Earth and set everything right for him and what is left of his world. But in order to do that he has to take back the power he rightfully had stolen from him by his brothers before it is too late. Determined to make things right for the world, and rectify the famine and devastation of "The Fall,"Seph still hopes to bring his family back together united, without the hate, anger, greed, resentment, and decimating power that is destroying them and everything else surrounding the expanse of their wake… by using love---- or the universe as they know it will cease to exist.
