About Us

We are Donovan Duncan and Ben Robinson. We left our careers as senior gaming executives to follow our passion and publish games. We have spent over 50 years combined in the gaming industry. We leverage our years of experience working with influencers, launching some of the top websites in the world in the gaming space, and driving significant engagement for some of the biggest games in the world. We bring that expertise and passion with us now as we grow Freedom! Games with our amazing developer partners.

We love games. When we aren’t working, we are gaming nightly with our wives in our aptly named “Duncan/Robinson Treehouse” discord server. We are a publishing team that will absolutely play your game deeply, engage and understand your audience and goals, and will provide you our thoughts as gamers who have played thousands of games.

About our Games

Godstrike (OverPowered Team) is a 3D boss rush bullet hell where time is your health and currency. Face and defeat powerful bosses before time runs out. Taking damage and using abilities drains your remaining combat time, so watch out!

Dreamscaper (Afterburner Studios) is a relaxing Roguelite blending elements from brawlers, top-down shooters, and dungeon crawlers. Every slumber is a different dungeon in an ever-changing world with a multitude of unique events and challenges. Play as Cassidy, dive into her subconscious and take on the surreal nightmares she wrestles with in order to save her from a dark fate.

An intense, arcade-style, 'bullet hell' SHMUP/STG in which you must master a vast array of ridiculous weaponry in order to defeat a race of evil aliens who are intent on abducting your babies and turning them into mutants. Jetboard Joust (BitBull Ltd) blends the spirit and intensity of 1980s arcade coin-op SMHUPs with the replayability and tactical elements of hardcore modern roguelites. Think Defender meets Resogun meets Enter the Gungeon. Don't expect a story. Do expect action, big guns, and explosions!

You can learn more about our other games like To the Rescue, One Lonely Outpost, Anuchard and more on our website.
