  • Development support (code / data)

  • Cultural reviews
  • Brand / PR / Marketing partnerships
  • Working with first-party platforms both dev-side (i.e. product creation, release management and patching) and store-side (assets, metadata and localized text).

Featured Game
s

Cult of the Lamb (Massive Monster Studios) casts players in the role of a possessed lamb saved from annihilation by an ominous stranger and must repay their debt by building a loyal following in his name. Start your own cult in a land of false prophets, venturing out into diverse and mysterious regions to build a loyal community of woodland worshippers and spread your Word to become the one true cult.

Ollie, kickflip, and grind your way through the ash and smoke of the Underworld as you take on a seemingly impossible quest in Skate Story (Sam Eng). Skate fast to destroy demons and save other tortured souls on your journey from fragile beginner to a hardened skater.

Anger Foot (Free Lives) is a lightning fast hard bass blast of kicking doors and kicking ass. Crash through the caffeine-fuelled fever dream of Shit City, putting the boot to a menacing menagerie of merciless gangsters.

Unleash the world's deadliest feet on a colourful cast of anthropomorphic enemies. Clearing out slums, sewers, and skyscrapers as you grab new weapons, unlock new sneakers, and upgrade your powers in absurd and wonderful ways. Kick and shoot your way to the exit as you leave behind a smouldering trail of shattered doors, broken bones, and crumpled energy drinks.
