Mental Universe is an award-winning game development studio based in the land of haggis and Irn-Bru, or to be more precise, Glasgow, Scotland.
Our aim is to create fun, vibrant, and exciting games. In particular, we want to create story-based games with a shared narrative, combining our passion for visual flair and storytelling with compelling gameplay.
