Our Story

Our Story

This adventure began north of Seattle, in a small cabin by the sea. With the electricity cut out and a fierce winter storm bearing down, a group of old friends set out to build something new: a collaborative studio hellbent on creating original experiences with our community.

Monster Squad is a Seattle based developer established by team members from the Torchlight and Borderlands series. We're a small group of overambitious troublemakers who love making games and the teamwork that goes into crafting them.

Our Values

We're here to develop compelling experiences that you love. We'll do that by releasing early, listening to your feedback, and updating often.

Our team is committed to chasing the fun. We rough out gameplay early, validate our assumptions, and let our curiosity guide us. Sometimes we chose an unfamiliar path and discover something new.

We wear many hats and contribute across disciplines. It helps us better our craft, invites diverse opinions, and grow as a team.

We’re a team of experts that trust and support one another to do amazing things. We stay open and share constantly.

We aim to do well by everyone we interact with. This means acting responsibly, treating others with empathy and supporting our team to do good.
