Frequently Asked Questions.
Red Castle Games.
Where does the name come from?
Red is synonymous with Australia’s landscape. The high iron content in the soil causes it to rust, giving it a red hue. The colour is also used on the Australian Indiginous flag and represents the red continent as well as the blood spilled in the European occupation of the country. Also, the chief developer of Red Castle Games is Richard Patterson. His paternal family comes from the Greek Island of Kastellorizo. It is the most remote Greek island in the Mediterranean. On top of it sits Castello Rosso erected by the knights of St John. The fishing village below it know it as the Red Castle.
Why are you calling your time travel adventure game, based on Australia's Stonehenge, The Lightning Place?
The game is set in a time when all the Earth was considered sacred by most peoples. They traveled along what the Australian Indignious People remember as Song Lines. These paths followed land formations, rivers, places where certain stars and planets were seen to join up, the seasons, and magnetic fields.They were the highways of the past and were followed on sea and land. In this world every significant site holds a particular function, much like the parts of a vast machine, only it was made from stone and crystal. All the world's ancient sites acted as generators of magnetic fields and storehouses of knowledge and spirtual learning. The sites were mantained by a priesthood made up from Elders who devoted their lives to understanding the spiritual energies and using the stones formations to strenghen their physcal, mental and spiritual pwers.
