About Poppy Works

Poppy Works was founded by two friends in 2012 after they met in college. Since then, they have worked on R&D, porting and co-development for previously established development studios and indie partners all over the world. We've fought a lot of technical fires for a lot of studios, and we're looking to build the future with you. Poppy Works has published several titles digitally and in retail boxes for console systems in the Americas, Europe and Asian territories.

We've been working remotely since our founding, so relocation will not be required.
