Make fabulous stuff

We are passionate about crafting high quality simulations that excite and engage both experienced and new players.

Our aim is to make software that enhances life. We don’t make games that are addictive, promote gambling, glorify violence or are discriminatory in any way. We would rather celebrate the human condition than devalue it.


Continuously improve

We work as one team, communicating frequently, openly and honestly in the knowledge that when we work together great things happen.
