WHAT ARE WE?

No politics, no fear, only games

Outer Heaven is a little game studio established as a port in the storm. Along with our partners we are currently exploring the frontier of lost ideas, and repairing the timeline.

We love games: the characters, the settings, how they make us feel, and how they are made.  In an industry increasingly focused on internal politics and pursuit of the next big business model,  Outer Heaven is a place where industry veterans can do what we love - create exceptional games.  It's art, it's craft, it's engineering, it's passion, and it's what our lives revolve around.
