Background of founders: We’re all graduates from Abertay University, and the entire team have been together since 2011. We teamed up for the 3rd year group projects initially, and worked on a few things for student competitions and game jams before deciding to try and take things to the next stage. We managed to secure some seed funding, and officially started up in September to work on our current, yet untitled project.

Number of employees: 10

Describe your company: We’re a new studio that’s focused on PC development and new tech (such as the Oculus Rift). We feel that the games that we want to make and ideas that we want to implement would be well suited to these platforms.

We are also able to cover multiple disciplines in-house, something that we’d like to use as much as possible for our own work or to sub-contract out to other developers based on their needs. Furthermore, we aim to sell some of the tools we’re currently developing.

Platforms supported/Services offered: PC/Mac/Linux, Oculus Rift, Android, Programming/Design/Art/Audio outsourcing.

Current project: Project Maize
