Aesthetician Labs is an artist-owned video game collective based out of Rochester, NY. You may know us from:


A high-octane delivery game about delivering platez around Rochester.


An infinite runner about helping a legless cow run as far and fast as she can

Having grown up during the golden age of flash games, we came to love bite-sized juicy games. Between the three of us we have participated in over 5 years of game jams like Ludum Dare, where we cut our teeth making small and experimental games. We want to make more of these tiny games and we'd love your help in making that happen.

Ultimately, we launched Aesthetician Labs as a way to make independent game development easier for our members. We believe that an artist-owned collective model best supports our members, and the games that we make.

Speaking of our members, meet…


Noah is a jam fiend and juice enthusiast. They've been participating in Ludum Dare since 2012, and at one point hadn't missed a single LD for 5 years! Noah is AeLa's lead programmer/Unity wrangler and co-designer. Find them on Twitter at @20c109.                                                                                                              



Aidan is AeLa’s lead/technical artist, co-designer, and blender wizard. He loves cute characters, bright colors, and things that wiggle on screens. Find Aidan’s (occasional) tweets at @aidanmarkham



Sam is a big fan of organization and reflection, which is fitting for a team’s producer! They can often be found scheming up improvements for the team’s systems and fun ways to make AeLa’s work more enjoyable, including snacks and celebrations. Find Sam on Twitter at @Sam_Catamaran.


Making tiny, juicy games means our timelines are short and downtime can be costly! We recently started AeLa Jam so we'd always have new prototypes in the oven. Every month we take a 2-day break from all our ongoing work to focus on prototyping, and we stream the work on Twitch so everyone can tune in!

By becoming an AeLa patron, you gain access to our community and behind-the-scenes work. You also get to contribute to our process by providing feedback on Patron-only beta/unreleased builds of our games, including prototypes from our monthly jams. Above all else, your patronage contributes to the viability of our collective, our community, and supports us in the most direct way possible. 💖
