A small but proud team of expert mercenaries, capable of making dreams come true (presuming those dreams involve creating amazing, story-rich video games).
IG was founded in late 2015 as an independent game studio creating fun games with powerful stories told through images, words, and sound. Headed by writer/designer Ryan A. Span, following the successful release of Euclidean by Alpha Wave Entertainment, IG aimed to deliver excellent experiences in a variety of genres, supported by a team of bright new talents in the industry.The Next World and Golem Creation Kit
Strategy/visual novel The Next World was the first game to be developed by IG, released by publisher AAD Productions. Praised for its writing and style, the success of TNW and its expansion Planetary Exploration gave further fuel to IG's efforts. This resulted in cute pixel art drag and drop game Golem Creation Kit. GCK gained a cult following, but ultimately did not succeed due to poor promotion and a changing market. After GCK, IG would part ways with AAD Productions.Post-AAD and Present
AAD became defunct in early 2018, cancelling all its ongoing projects. In this period IG experimented with many prototypes but these ultimately proved impractical. In January 2019, formal development began on something entirely new -- The Zone: Stalker Stories. A striking visual novel and RPG card game, The Zone represents our most ambitious and well-crafted experience yet.
