We are pentapaw studios, a versatile game and software development team from Saarbrücken, Germany. Other than our experience in game making, we bring expertise from fields, such as animation, software architecture, user experience design, sound design and business management. This allows us to bring our game visions to life by creating most of the content in-house.
After winning the Game Award Saar for "Best Startup" in 2021, we were able to found our company during the following year.
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:
