Who We Are

We tell stories. We get a thrill out of epic plotlines, well-rounded characters, mashed-up mechanics and snappy dialogue. We enjoy pushing boundaries with genres, experimenting with narrative gameplay, innovating with new technology and upending applecarts of expectations.

We’re an entertainment company. For the past eight years we’ve been focused mostly on creating and developing award-winning, narrative-driven video games across all platforms, and, with some of the most talented artists, animators and developers in the country, we’ve recently begun dipping our toes into the waters of animation and series development.

We’re a cheerful collection of decent human beings. We’re doing our best to break the negative cycles that the entertainment industries are so famous for. We work a 4-day week to keep the creative energy tanks topped up. We do our best to employ an inclusive, diverse team with a well-balanced spread of voices, backstories and experience. Nobody’s perfect, but we really are trying to make this industry a better place to work.

Our Current Projects

Escape to a peaceful island populated with cheerful townsfolk and dozens of friendly dinosaurs in Paleo Pines. Run your own dinosaur ranch, befriend and care for your new dinosaur friends, and saddle up those trusted steeds for big sky adventures into the wild and whimsical countryside!

How do you create a grand-scale adventure in a room-scale space? The answer: Go vertical. You are the elevator operator of The Infinite Hotel - an infinite-star resort with an infinite number of rooms, an infinite number of floors and an infinite number of problems. Don’t ask what happened to the last guy who had your job - you’ll find out soon enough.

Quest Quest: The Quest for Quests is a farcical and poignant fantasy adventure about an old-time hack-&-slash hero in an enlightened new world, where the only quest left is to discover his own purpose. Part narrative adventure, part rogue-like dungeon basher, Quest Quest is an over the top deconstruction of the RPG genre as you’ve never seen it before.
