Our Values



Our game is our own. Everyone’s contributions are expected and vital.



We iterate often so we can move past failure quickly. We’re not afraid of new ideas.



If we’re having fun making it, we know players will have fun playing it.



Life isn’t all about work. We believe that rested, inspired developers make better games.

We’re a friendly and hard-working team
