WHO WE ARE
We are a globally distributed, award winning team of artists, technologists and company builders with a mission to create incredible shared gaming moments.
We believe gamers are gamers on every device and deserve to play together in beautiful, responsive and deep AAA experiences, whichever their native platform or control mechanism. Together, we are on a quest to build the very best home for the most talented game makers around the world, passionate about breaking creative and technical boundaries in the industry.
AAA MOBILE-FIRST GAMES
We experiment with ideas we believe deserve to exist, concepts that push the expectations of what’s possible on mobile and across platforms. We express our passion for the craft through standout visuals, deeply compelling gameplay and spellbinding worlds.
MOBILE FIRST - NATIVELY CROSS PLATFORM
We develop approaches to controls, technology, and systems that allow us to rapidly extend our mobile-first designs to any platform. Whether you enjoy playing on touch, controller, or mouse-and-keyboard, our games are built for you.
The Battleground Shooter | Coming soon
Catalyst Black is a next generation mobile battleground shooter. Catalyst Black builds on everything we learned in Vainglory, and combines beautiful, large scale, PvEvP gameplay with fluid combat and a deep loadout based progression model. We’re also excited about the pioneering drop-in drop-out gameplay that allows for an instant social experience with friends. We love where this game is heading. Join us to test it out in early access.
The MOBA perfected for TOUCH. | 2014
Vainglory was the very first mobile MOBA. Played and watched by millions over the years, Vainglory was originally featured by Apple in the 2014 keynote, and later launched on Android and ultimately PC as the first cross platform MOBA, Vainglory features deep strategic 25min battles or 5min brawl modes. Vainglory was in 2020 converted to a community edition – an entirely free version of the game available on iOS and Android.
We invest in our own game engine technology to enable us to push the artistic, technical, and creative boundaries of multiplayer gaming on every game-capable device.
The E.V.I.L. engine is a console grade, C++ game engine that delivers high performance graphics, precision controls and combat-feel across the widest range of hardware, screen sizes, and control mechanisms. Add to this an ever-growing array of authoring tools and frameworks for gameplay, UI, and other features.
Investing in our own engine requires a lot of time, care, and the constant management of tradeoffs. For us, the ability to break boundaries and build experiences that no tech can currently create, makes it all worth it.

OUT OF BOUNDS TALENT DENSITY
STRENGTH FROM DIVERSITY
We believe that the more diverse our team is across gender, culture, geography, and gaming tastes, the stronger we are. We thrive on feedback, and the broader our perspectives, the better global gaming experiences we can create.
AT THE CUTTING EDGE
We live every day to push the artistic, technical and creative boundaries of gaming of every gaming capable device on the planet. We work hard to become a little bit better at what we do and how we do it every day, always challenging the status quo.
ALWAYS PERFECTING REMOTE FIRST
With no permanent HQ, we are intentional about our processes, technology, operations and culture, to make it feel equally productive, inclusive and fun to be part of the team regardless of location.
