We released our first game Lost Ember in November 2019 and are transitioning into a new project right now. We’d love you to join us pretty soon to make sure you get to shape the new project together with us.

Lost Ember was a narrative, single-player exploration adventure that achieved international praise from players and press alike. With our new project we do want to continue developing emotional narrative games, while doing some things a little different than before. Please reach out to us to find out more about our plans for the new project!
