About Junkfish

Dive into indie with Junkfish - a leading, independent video game development studio based in Scotland and Singapore. We develop and deliver unique, innovative titles for a worldwide audience; best known for the BAFTA-nominated, cult-classic horror, "Monstrum". Most recently, Junkfish became the proud winners of the UK Game of the Show with our multiplayer horror sequel, “Monstrum 2”.

About Our Games

Monstrum 2 is an asymmetric multiplayer sequel to Monstrum, the critically acclaimed nautical rogue-lite horror. Pit yourself against a terrifying monster as a team of human prisoners locked in a tactical struggle to escape a decrepit sea fortress, or play as one of the many oceanic monstrosities hunting them down. Experience tense first-person stealth gameplay and fast-paced adrenaline pumping chases within an immersive, open-ended labyrinth of horror where the environment presents ever-changing challenges with each playthrough.

Monstrum takes the traditional survival horror formula and remixes it completely with procedurally generated levels, permadeath, and AI driven predators, ensuring that nowhere on its derelict cargo ship is ever truly safe.

Attack of the Earthlings is a turn-based strategy game in which you play as a race of aliens fending off a deadly invasive species – humans – who have landed their massive space-drill on your house. Take on Galactoil, a comically dysfunctional intergalactic energy corporation, and its larger-than-life employees in a tactical-stealth game that fuses satisfying strategic gameplay and dark comedy in a quirky single-player story.
