About Armor Games 

Armor Games is an indie games publisher focused on building a supportive, sustainable, and creative environment for amazing developers. We’re working on games like Bear and Breakfast, Snacko, The Last Stand: Aftermath, and Void Tyrant. With our roots in the early Flash/web games scene we’ve grown to become a publisher for indies on PC, console, mobile, VR, and beyond.

A Few of Our Recent Games

Bear and Breakfast (Gummy Cat Studio) is a laid-back management adventure game where you play as a well-meaning bear trying to run a B+B in the woods. Hank and his friends find an abandoned shack and, equipped with their teenage ingenuity, turn it into a money-making bed and breakfast scheme for unsuspecting tourists. As your business expands so do the mysteries of the forest, and Hank soon finds himself uncovering a plot deeper than the wilderness itself.

Step into the paws of former big city kitties named Momo and Mikan as they start a new life on a seemingly deserted island in Snacko (Bluecurse Studios). Unravel its mysteries while you rebuild a community, farm, fish, and explore the island and beyond! As Momo, with Mikan's help, you will literally build your home and community from the ground up. And maybe you'll also find out the secret behind the island's past along the way... ?

From the creators of The Last Stand: Dead Zone comes The Last Stand: Aftermath (Con Artist Games), an all-new singleplayer rogue-lite action adventure. Infected by the affliction that ravaged humanity, you set out to explore the apocalypse and find hope for your fellow survivors. Even like this, you can still make a difference. Don’t give up.

You can view more of our games like LumbearJack, The Tartarus Key, Swords & Souls: Neverseen and more on our website.
