Recent Projects

Drop back in with the most iconic skateboarding games ever made, now available on Nintendo Switch!

Gearbox’s iconic, comedic Looter-Shooters are back and gorgeous as ever on Nintendo Switch! We worked tirelessly with 2K and Gearbox to bring these ravenously requested classics to Switch in full 1080p docked and 720p handheld, at 30 FPS and with no downgrading of art assets. On top of that, we included all the trimmings

of the GOTY releases — and newly developed motion controls specifically built for this incredible collection.

Ever wanted to explore a strange new world? Discover diverse wildlife? Poke that wildlife it in the eye, or kick its explosive body into more dangerous animals than your adorable Ray Gun is equipped for? Ever host your own funeral(s) after embarrassing deaths and re-clonings? Did we mention you can DOUBLE self-funeral attendance with Local/Online Co-op, exclusively on Nintendo Switch?

Working closely with Typhoon Studios, we transformed their colorful, comedic debut project into a portable powerhouse on Nintendo Switch – yet they offered us ZERO help on these alliterations (which is fair).
