Hello

We're creating Button City, a low poly narrative adventure game about cute animal kids on a high jinx escapade to save their local arcade from corporate evil. Players will enter a quirky world of pastel colors, spunky animals, rockin’ arcade games, and floating islands. Make friends, play mini-games, solves puzzles, and complete quests around town as you follow a story about friendship, growing up, and saving the things that are important to you.

The game follows a shy fox named Fennel as he befriends the coolest kids in town, the Fluff Squad. He joins them at the Button City arcade for the tournament of the summer against their ultimate rivals the Tuff Fluffs. But their battle is cut short when they discover that the arcade will soon be closing its doors to make way for a Big Box store. With friendship on their side and a crazy scheme, the Fluff Squad set out to save their beloved hangout and win arcade glory.


Who are we

Subliminal is a two-person indie game studio. We're a married couple and we have two cats who may or may not also help with the game. We're an artist + programmer team and together we collaborate on the game design and story.

Shandiin
@shandiin makes all the art for the game. She's obsessed with cats, fervently reads fantasy books, has watched X-Files more than 3 times, and loves Ghibli movies.

Ryan @subliminalman programs the game. He's a walking encyclopedia of Nintendo history, he likes Garfield, he can kinda beat box, and half his body mass is made up of pad thai with tofu.
