Phobos and Deimos Kickstarter is LIVE!

Cloudscape is excited to announce our newest project: Phobos and Deimos!

Maida Kilwa is a teenage refugee from Mars, who is faced with the difficult process of adapting to her new life on Earth. From high school life to a dystopian government, Maida is torn between the promise of safety and the fires of rebellion.

Eight years in the making, Phobos and Deimos is a thoughtful reflection on migration and class. It’s about finding a new place to belong in an unfamiliar world, while navigating a hostile school system. How will Maida find her way?
