darbotron ltd

say hello to darbotron: a game development micro studio with a sensibly sized dream

darbotron’s mission is to make games for people to play

darbotron understands that not every person who plays games is a hyperactive teenager with the reflexes of a highly caffeinated feline ninja and/or the leisure time surfeit of a student

games should entertain intellectually, provide kinaesthetically satisfying interaction, be able to surprise, and hopefully to elicit a wry smile or a chuckle once in a while
