Description

Jellyfish Games is a Montreal-based independent game studio, made up of Adam Blahuta, Dave Williams and Daniel Dahl. We brought our big-studio experience together to make the deep, systems-driven games we've always wanted to play.

History

Early history

Jellyfish Games was founded in 2013 in a coffee shop. a bunch of game development friends met up weekly to talk video games and show off their side projects. When Dave Williams first presented a sci-fi game he was designing (Astrobase Command), he had a team ready to make it a reality before he could even say "alien spider-bear infestation".

Recent

After a warm reception by the sci-fi loving media and gaming community, Jellyfish Games ramped up their efforts towards a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, which launched in December 2013. While the campaign fell short of its financial target, it drew the attention of a passionate sci-fi fanbase and was greenlit on Steam in just a few weeks (a major feat at the time). This was all the motivation the team needed to push through their budget constraints (read: lack of a budget). They are currently working feverishly on Astrobase Command.
