Capybara Games

We’re Toronto-based independent video game developer Capy (short for Capybara Games). We’re the 25 person studio that made games like Grindstone, Below, Super Time Force, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, Don’t Starve Shipwrecked and a lot more.

At Capy, our work is driven by creativity and heart. Since 2003, we’ve been making games that explore new worlds and ideas that spring from the minds of our team and collaborators. We’ve created for a variety of PC, console, and mobile platforms, across a breadth of genres, always in pursuit of creating games that inspire us and our players. The result is a catalogue of games that explore joy, beauty, melancholy, music, and playfulness — with even more exciting frontiers for us to explore on the horizon.

Featured Game

Grindstone is a puzzle game where epic adventures are just your 9-to-5. It’s your job to mine grindstones from the Creeps that lurk on the mountain in over 250 levels of intricate puzzles and hazards, all in the hopes of saving up enough grindstones to take your family on a much needed vacation.

Super Time Force Ultra is an action-packed platformer with a time-travelling twist! You’re in control of time itself, bending and stretching it to your advantage on the battlefield. Rewind time and choose when to jump back into the action, teaming-up with your past selves in a unique single-player co-op experience!

BELOW is an action-adventure roguelike, which presents a vast underworld of ever-shifting labyrinths where deadly monstrosities, cunning traps, and a shadowy presence lurk in every passage.
