Alex and IonutEdit
Alex and Ionut found eachother on the flash game website Kongregate, under the usernames of "AlexFromRomania" and "Gheata".
Since 2012, they worked toghether on flash games, Gheata doing art and programming and Alex having minor involvement as a tester and later storyline-writer, map designer and game manager.
As SteelShield's first game, Ionut and Alex decided to release an improved version of their last game, and called it Legends of Verakia 1.5.
After the release of the first game, the duo started to work on the next game, with help from flash game developers Elliot J. "Converse", PukingPunk, Blake Reynolds, Pixelated Birdy and Kathy K. The project was stalled due to unexpected real-life issues of both founders, altough Ionut continued to work independently on a project that was released on March 23rd, Lost in Darkness, and which became the second game by SteelShield Studios.
