About 
Featherweight Games

Featherweight is a 10 person indie studio based in Surry Hills, Sydney. Founded in 2014, we are a small studio that aims to make ambitious, original, high-quality games that punch above their weight. Our games have been downloaded over 200 million times and have appeared in the top games of the App Store and Google Play.

We only work on original IP and aim to stand out by making unique games that are truly rewarding and memorable for players.

 

Our Philosophy

We love games and hope to make memorable, beautiful and exciting games in a mobile market that is often generic and exploitative. We believe there are lots of new and exciting ideas to be explored and want to give players new high-quality experiences that will stay with them the way the games we love have stayed with us. We hope to celebrate influences from all backgrounds especially from those who have not traditionally had a voice in the games industry.

We are a passionate, small but ambitious team of people who excel at what they do and love doing it. We encourage input and ideas from everyone and have a high degree of trust in every member of the team to do what they do best.
