We are currently working on Yarn Guardians, a shoot 'em up inspired action-adventure with Metroidvania and RPG elements, which takes you into a world where most animal species have gained the ability to fly!
This game is about the five Mienyans Rudy, Noriko, Nero, Max and Lucy, who need to find the legendary Yarn Balls in order to restore the peace in the world. On their way they have to fight numerous enemies and learn what it means to have friends you can count on!
In 2020 Yarn Guardians won the Game Award Saar for the "Best Prototype".

Furthermore, the team members participated in various Game Jam projects linked below:
