Description

East Side Games is a proudly independent and profitable game studio with a collaborative, creative, and fun culture. Our games fund all our new projects, and everyone who works here has a direct impact on the day-to-day business.

Our talented, highly-motivated team believes in constantly improving; we are not afraid to take ownership and meet challenges head-on in order to reach our goals.

Purpose-built technology infrastructure powers our rapid, iterative prototyping, based directly on audience feedback. This allows us to take design ideas to playable releases in days rather than months.
