Our Core Values

Games are for Everyone

We believe games are for everyone and that their greatest purpose is to bring people together. We aim to make our games an enjoyable experience that reflects the diverse community that plays them. 

Strive to Build Community

We believe that community is the beating heart that keeps our company thriving. We are dedicated to creating a place of respect where community can grow, to listen to the feedback of our fans, and to leave a lasting positive impact on our industry.

Our Hearts are In Our Stories

We believe that every game can tell a story, and within those stories we have a chance to reveal our hearts. We aim to only move forward with projects that embody a deeper meaning. Stories that say something about who we are, what we believe in, and serve as a moment to truly connect with our community.


We believe in the resilience of ourselves and our team. When things go wrong, we don’t give up or waste our time with blame. Instead, we focus on the solution and never stop moving forward. We stand up for what we believe in, our community, and one another.
