Making a difference through play

We believe that video games are one of the most powerful storytelling mediums and use them to create unique, moving experiences.

Our debut game, Lost Words: Beyond the Page, is a multi-award winning atmospheric puzzler, set between the pages of a diary and a fantasy land.

Featuring a story by renowned games writer Rhianna Pratchett the game ties the narrative into the gameplay in an unusual way, by having the player running on and interacting with words to solve puzzles.
