About Us

As a New Zealand based company, our first indie title ATONE marked the beginning of our game development journey. Our studio craft embodies two qualities, passion and dedication. For us, game development is neither a hobby nor a job. We find purpose and fulfillment by transporting others to a place of limitless potential and exploration.

Our games are an extension of our creative personalities. Within each narrative, our aim is to reignite the childhood spark that has captured our imaginations since day one.

slightly OBSESSIVE.

the team

At present, our team is composed of three young founders. We absolutely love what we do and are self proclaimed “kids at heart”. As a studio, we endeavour to create games that we would personally enjoy playing ourselves, fuelling our passion into the production of captivating narrative-driven environments.  

As a trio, we encourage and support each other. Sharing our knowledge in efforts to diversify our skill sets, resulting in games that are truly a joy to play.
