Current Teams

Founded in Montreal, Quebec, the game development capital of Canada, Cardboard Utopia was started from the belief that the best, most cherished games are the ones that engage you through gameplay, story, and characters. Games that are not just flashy experiences that leave your thoughts once you put down the controller, but make you think, plan, question and discuss. These are the things that create memories for future years. These are the types of games we make.

Nine Dots Studio is all about creating the best environment for developers to thrive and grow. Our workplace culture is based on sustainable management practices and empowering the team. By ensuring everyone has significant creative input, we strive to create games that we ourselves love to play.

Outerminds is all about fun, creative and entertaining retro games. We founded this company to bring back gaming as it used to be in the 90s while using new technologies to push the ideas further.  

We hail from Slovenia, a land far, far away, where dogecoins abound and Nyan cats rule the skies. We won’t eat, drink, sleep, or breathe until we bring our fans, patrons, and protectors the kind of action packed, crossplatform, casually hardcore brawler games that should work if played with others. We pledge to give a 100% at least 50% of the time!

Here at Sand Sailor Studio we strongly believe that games should become more than just a toy. They should be a way of experiencing new and stimulating realities, a place where developers and gamers come together to share cultural diversity.
