Finish Line Games

We published Cel Damage HD, a cartoon vehicular combat game, then developed Maize, a strange and silly game involving sentient corn and a talking Russian toy bear, and Skully, a game about a reanimated skull on a platformer adventure. This pretty much sums up the type of studio we are, and it will either excite or frighten you to know that we are making a new game.

We foster a culture of equity, diversity, belonging, and value our individual differences and appreciate the skills, backgrounds, and viewpoints that each person brings to the table. Everyone on our team has a voice to ensure we all feel safe and heard. We recognize that these values are critical, not only to our own success, but to the success of the entire industry and the medium as a whole.

We will need your help and perspective making our new game, and we encourage anyone to apply. While it takes hard work to make a game, we promise it will be a fun and rewarding ride. 

Featured Game

Welcome to the world of Cel Damage HD! A revitalisation of the timeless classic Cel Damage, Cel Damage HD is a fast-paced vehicle combat game where the world’s toughest cartoon drivers get behind the wheel of outlandish cars and battle each other in order to gain fame on the most popular cartoon demolition derby show on TV.

Maize is a first-person adventure game about what happens when two scientists misinterpret a memo from the U.S. Government and create sentient corn. And that last sentence is pretty much the least ridiculous thing about the game.

Fate has bestowed Skully a second chance at life when an enigmatic deity reanimates the skull through the power of magical clay after it washes upon the shore of a secluded isle. Skully must hop, skip, and roll through this diverse island habitat teeming with obstacles and puzzles to intervene in a feud between the deity’s three siblings whose quarrel jeopardizes the place they call home.
