Description

We are a small indie group of developers who gather in our free time to make games and push ourselves. Our purpose is rapid development so we can gradually build a library of polished and enjoyable games. Accessibility is a large focus for us which is why we choose to work in flash and Unity. We try to challenge ourselves by making decisions that are "fun" as opposed to "correct." (Hence our terrible name) We hope you will enjoy our crap!

History

Early history

Formed as a group of friends who met in an apartment (although this hasn't really changed much) to make games. We started out wanting to make simple free games based on terrible jokes.

After that

After our game Organ Trail was released for free, we got over 600,000 players over the course of year. The number one request from fans was to port it to mobile, so we ran a Kickstarter, earned 16k and started a company.
