About Curve Digital

Curve Digital is one of the world’s leading publishers of games on PC and consoles. Since 2013, we’ve been working with some of the world’s best game developers to help bring their games to the broadest possible audiences all over the world. From celebrated indie classics like Bomber Crew and For the King, through to multi-million selling smash hits like Human: Fall Flat, we’re passionate about what we publish.

In 2019 we won both 'Publishing Star' at the Develop:Star Awards and 'Indie Game Publisher of the Year' at the MCV Awards. Since 2019, we have also acquired Runner Duck Games, the studio responsible for Bomber Crew and Space Crew, and IronOak Games, the creators of For the King, into the Curve family of companies.

Our Featured Games

Human: Fall Flat is a quirky, open-ended physics-based puzzle and exploration game set in floating dreamscapes. Your goal is to escape these surreal dreams by solving puzzles with nothing but your wits and physics.

For The King is a challenging blend of Strategy, JRPG Combat, and Roguelike elements. Each playthrough is made unique with procedural maps, quests, and events. Brave the relentless elements, fight the wicked creatures, sail the seas and delve into the dark underworld. None before you have returned from their journey. Will you be the one to put an end to the Chaos?

Embr is a frantic firefighting game set in a hyper-capitalist reality where traditional emergency services are a thing of the past. Scale buildings, smash windows, fight fires and save lives either alone or with up to four players.
