For the past three years, under the leadership of BAFTA winning founder Sean Vesce (Never Alone, Tomb Raider Series, Mechwarrior Series), we have been solving the problems of the unknown for incredible partners like Google, Niantic Labs, Microsoft, and others. We are a tight knit group of makers thriving in our undiscovered future, making shared game experiences with AR, VR, Geolocation, Live Streaming and more. In addition to our client work, we make all sorts of wild garbage from signs that tell you when someone’s in the bathroom, to a weekly tabletop RPG show.
