HistorySmall Team, Big Heart
Northern Heart Games is a small indie development team based out of Minnesota. Our focus is on developing innovative and fresh gameplay ideas, with a focus on multiplayer. The magic of multiplayer is that the players are what make the game fun. Instead of manufacturing an entire world to guide a single user through, we manufacture small arenas and give friends the tools they need to make their own fun. Not only are these the sorts of games we like to play ourselves, but it’s also an incredibly sustainable and low-scope approach to making games appropriate for our adorably small team size and budget. What we lack in manpower we make up for in horsepower. Even with kids in the mix and more on the way, we work hard every night to bring you some seriously cool games for a tiny little duo.
