Unleashing cuteness and joy on your screens!


Say hello to pentapaw studios, a fun-loving game and software dev team from Saarbrücken, Germany! But we're not just game developers, we've also got mad skills in animation, software design, user experience, music production, and business management. This means we can bring our game dreams to life by making most of the magic happen in-house.

After winning the trophy for "Best Startup" at the Game Award Saar 2021, we kicked off the next year by founding pentapaw studios.

Get ready to blast off into a world of cuteness! We're currently cooking up Yarn Guardians, an award-winning action-adventure inspired by shoot 'em up and Metroidvania classics. Soar through a splintered world filled with flying animals so cute, you'll want to take them all home!
Follow the five Mienyans Rudy, Noriko, Nero, Max and Lucy and embark on a journey to find the legendary Yarn Balls in order to restore peace in the world. Meet unforgettable characters, battle fierce foes, and discover the true meaning of friendship.

We've also taken part in a few Game Jams and made some super fun games. Check out the links below to see what we've been up to and try them out for yourself:
