About Our Games

In Dish Life: The Game, experience the life of a stem cell researcher by managing the daily life of a laboratory and growing your very own stem cells. Manage your laboratory and nurture your stem cells to become a celebrated stem cell scientist. Come face to face with issues that stem cell scientists deal with daily; politics, social issues and staff problems are just a few of the types of dilemmas you’ll have to deal with in Dish Life.

BUTTONSiO is the antithesis of a typical mobile puzzle game. Born of frustration, it will break all the usual game design rules and captivate and confuse players. Also, kids just can’t put it down! They just LOVE pressing buttons! It’s like artificially intelligent bubble wrap.

Flintlock Boom is a VR shooter that goes back to the Old Days of Arcade. It's a fast-paced compilation of minigames where speed and accuracy matters. Inspired by games like WarioWare, you won’t be lost for a challenge.

With varying difficulties, you can test your skills on the Beginner courses and when you're ready, see if you can beat the impossible challenge Flintlock Boom has to offer. Be Warned though, we don't believe in an Easy mode. Even the Beginner courses will prove challenging. If you’re not quick, accurate and direct, you won’t stand a chance.
