Stray Fawn Studio is a ten person indie game studio based in Zurich, Switzerland. The company focuses on developing their own projects which are often situated in the simulation game genre. Procedural content generation and the simulation of living worlds form the core of the studio’s creations. Stray Fawn was founded by Micha Stettler, a space enthusiastic software engineer and Philomena Schwab, a biology loving game designer.


Stray Fawn was founded by Micha Stettler, a space-enthusiastic software engineer and Philomena Schwab, a biology-loving game designer in 2016. They met at a local game event, both presenting their individual hobby projects. Both Philomena and Micha were very impressed by each other's projects and so they made a deal: Finish both projects together and then keep working on new games as a team. This team has now grown to 10 members, working on a variety of projects for different platforms. In 2023 Stray Fawn expanded into indie game publishing and is now supporting other developers on their journey.
