We have significant experience working with partners all over the world, as well as strict no-crunch policies, and our company philosophy is grounded in the ideal of a healthy work-life balance and ethical game development.

  • Create a fun & inspirational work environment while coaching artists by providing reviews, growth plans, and generally assisting in their skill sets
  • Leading the 2D and 3D art efforts to produce environments for our games from concept to final set dressing.
  • Create and iterate unique and stunning designs within a determined production schedule
  • If you have a dog, they must attend teleconferences with you.

About the dogs

We are…

…the outsiders. We’re not interested in making the same game you’ve seen before with a new skin slapped on top of it. We’re innovating. We’re doing things you’ve never seen, or forgotten were possible, making weird and wonderful products that inspire conversation.
