History

Early history

Rusty Moyher began creating games in 2011. He left a job at Apple and 10 years of independent filmmaking to chase a childhood dream: Making Video Games. After six months he released Box Cat, a retro arcade smasher for iPhone and iPad. Box Cat was received well critically and commercially and helped fund the next phase of development.

Phase 2

Encouraged, he began exploring ideas for a larger "Game 2". After six months of prototyping and experimentation, Rusty settled on a four player space brawler called Astro Duel. To break from this complex followup, he created a tabletop hand frenzy for iPad called Bloop. The simple, engaging design of Bloop lead to a finalist spot at IndieCade 2012. Rusty has since released Astro Duel and Retro Game Crunch, a six game series with Shaun Inman and Matt Grimm.
