LezLiz is a solo independent game developer from Finland who specializes on positive, inclusive LGBTQ themed games. She primarily focuses on writing stories about queer women from the point of view of a queer woman.
LezLiz as a business was founded in August 2017 by a lesbian whose dream was to make games that would appeal to women like herself. Knowing that few would like to risk working on a nichè game for years without being paid, she decided to become a solo developer and do everything herself.
The first prototypes of Rose Seed Replica concretized just a few months after the founding of the company. The game kept steadily growing and accumulating more features and content until it had reached the word count of 170,000; an astounding number for a solo project.
After nearly 3 years of intensive development, Rose Seed Replica had finally gotten to the point where it just lacked polish and extensive testing. Beta testing started in the beginning of July, 2020 and the Steam and Itch.io pages for the game went live on July 7, 2020. The game was scheduled to launch on September 9, 2020.
