We make games that are hella queer and inclusive as fuck. To us this means games with:

  • Art by queer artists that portrays and normalises the full spectrum of human diversity, with a particular focus on queer folk & relationships.
  • Mechanics that allow & encourage queer choices, that let players play characters that explore their own or others' identities.
  • Narratives that focus on queerness, marginalised people, diverse sexualities & genders, and intersectionality.

We're tired of our communities being left out of the narrative. So we're rewriting the narrative.

Thank you so much for joining us.
