Description

A scrappy games studio focused on creating dangerous, intriguing worlds to explore. Games: Shattered Planet, Moon Hunters, The Shrouded Isle... and more to come!

History

Founding

Kitfox Games was founded by Tanya Short (Designer), Xin Ran Liu (Artist), Mike Ditchburn (Programmer), and Jongwoo Kim (Programmer) in spring 2014, with the gracious support of the Execution Labs incubator. Michael Ditchburn left the company 1 year later.

Growth

Montreal is a fantastic place to start an indie games company. The city is full of talented individuals with contagious passion! Without the support of other Montreal developers, there's no way Kitfox could have made it this far.
