The Tall Trees

We're making games with heart in 'em. Games that tell stories in interesting ways, that make players think, and that remain in their heads when they've finished playing.

Narrative is very important to us, whether told through dialogue, or the environment, or left largely open to you. We want to create games that conjure the feeling of textures: warm sand betwen toes. Snow underneath boots. Grass and corn and wood and metal and wind.

The company is currently in the preliminary stages of a new, unannounced game project.
