About Us

Kitfox Games is an independent Montreal-based games company that’s dedicated to creating only the highest-quality games. We have a soft spot for exploring and discovering new worlds.

Much like the crew of any respectable starship, we were each born in a different country. We’re now united in hard work on Shattered Planet and Moon Hunters.

But who ARE we?

Comrades and Allies

Ryan serves as the crew’s Universal Translator on away missions, turning puny human emotions into alien-digestible beats and beeps. He’s previously composed for The Yawhg (IGF Audio Finalist), Electronic Super Joy, Sokobond (IGF Audio Honorable Mention), and Starseed Pilgrim.

digChloe ChanArtist
Chloe was the ship’s Galley Commander. She was a force to be reckoned with, as most people reckon that she is probably only still alive by force of will. While on board, she helped by creating dozens of assets for Shattered Planet.

Greg served with distinction as the ship’s Math Officer, navigating the tricky geometries and algebras of Shattered Planet. He was bitten by a radioactive game developer in 2011 and now does battle daily with his nemesis, Dr. Octobug.
