Who We Are

We set out to make games worthy of earning players' love. Games that create life-long relationships. Games that warm hearts and challenge minds. And great games can only be made by great teams. Teams who are in it for no other reason than to make something amazing for players and who really understand the audience they serve - because they are a part of that audience. Teams humble enough to never take anything for granted but ambitious enough to take the bets that others are afraid of. Teams that aim to win and are unafraid to leverage their talent to do it. Teams that are kind and have each other’s backs even as they fearlessly debate each other in search of truth, not comfort. Teams full of SEEKERS who never settle for “adequate” and do it with heart.

About the Company

Joining a startup can be intimidating, but can be exceptionally rewarding. We do our best to make sure Seekers’ needs are met so they can focus on what they love most - building games!

  • We are fully remote. We built the company as remote at its core, not an afterthought. We default to trusting and empowering our team. We get together in-person a few times a year to reinforce strong relationships. We also offer WFH annual budget for those who want to invest in their home office.
  • We offer flexible PTO and fantastic benefits. We offer generous medical, dental, vision, disability, and life insurance benefits, as well as a 401k with an employer match.
  • We share in success. We reward all of our Seekers with equity, because when we win, we win together.
