About off the beaten track

We strive to move people and evoke strong emotions developing “games that make a difference”. We want to show what videogames can be as a medium and leave a little dent in their universe. Our games are unconventional and try to explore the boundaries of the medium. With new twists on game mechanics and a focus on characters and storytelling, we let you see the world through different eyes. As a small indie team we have the freedom to try new game design principles in our own projects while offering professionalism and reliability to our contract partners.
