Picking projects that serve our goals.

Studio Vibes

Good Vibes

Feelings we want our work and culture to replicate: Hitting the flow state on a project you're passionate about. Staring at the stars in awe. Getting a freezie after soccer practice. Sick beats in the headphones while you're walking and then *AHA!* A restaurant server went the extra mile to make the meal memorable. A deep, interesting conversation over beer with your friend. A grueling long hike you just completed on a sunny day. The kids are in bed, pajamas are on, and the unwrapped video game is popped into the console. At the beach in July with a drink and a book - but no watch. At a concert hearing your favourite band. Beating that hard boss in Dark Souls. Completing a marathon.


Feelings we DO NOT want our work and culture to replicate: Spending 3 months on a spreadsheet no one reads. Disappointment because expectations were not communicated or outlined. Asking yourself, "Is this it?" Your ice cream fell to the ground. Your favourite band just broke up. Taking a meeting at 8pm and wondering why. Sports parents yelling at the referees. Forgetting your significant other's special day. Wondering, "What if we had tried a little harder?" You take a drink from your water to find out it's milk Something went down the "wrong pipe".

Guiding Principles


Focus on Outcomes

Our philosophy on quality work is that it comes down to collaborative planning, managing expectations, and clear goals. We believe the outcome is more important than the journey it took to get there.


Be Where You Want to Be.

Rent money is better spent on people. Fair pay for fair work, no matter where you are located. We will strive to encourage, promote and hire from anywhere we can legally do so.


Our Word is Bond

Trust is the currency of life. We operate on a series of commitments at every level, based on our experience and calculated assessments. We follow through with what we say.


Adaptability in Everything

Continuous improvement underpins everything we do as a team.  When unexpected challenges arise (as they do), we embrace the change and work with it. 


All Voices Are Heard

Every game maker is a storyteller. To see the whole picture you need to take a wider lens.  We expect constructive criticism, transparency, openness, and candor.  We are better when we hear from everyone.
