The Launching Pad team

2008ish–2012ish

We had some great times. Running an independent video game studio is a ton of fun, but sadly we just never quite made enough to support ourselves. With a glisten in our eyes, we’ve had to say farewell to our beloved little company. You can read Tristan’s highly regarded account of our ups and downs in the Gamasutra feature article The End of the Journey.

We’re proud of what we achieved, especially the critically lauded iOS adventure Scarlett and the Spark of Life. We think all our other games are pretty great too — though we may be biased.
