We are currently working on our first IP across two game projects, Avarice and Penumbra.

Avarice is currently in the concept and validation stage and we are seeking investment to help us develop a prototype. Avarice is a futuristic, post-apocalyptic survival RPG.

Penumbra is a free-to-play online multiplayer text-based role-playing game that allows us to build our community, test our game mechanics, gain experience with our dev processes and working together as a team, while also developing our IP.


We care about creating a positive environment, both for our employees and for the players in our gaming community. We aspire to create immersive story-telling games that are rich with narrative, utilize creative and problem-solving skills, reflect real world scenarios in a futuristic fantasy environment, and above all, are fun and enriching experiences.
