Description

Stumbling Cat is a Seattle based studio focused on producing high quality games that take a fresh look on established gameplay dynamics. Their goal is to create games that encourage players to create, explore, and challenge their wits.

History

Founding

Stumbling Cat was founded by Renee Gittins in 2014 when she started collaborating on side projects with Matthew Endsley. Previously, Matt founded Carbon Games in 2011, known for the creation of AirMech, an action RTS. He has over ten years of experience in the game industry and an extensive programming background. Renee’s background is in engineering and project management with a degree from Harvey Mudd College and experience as a lead on several extensive engineering and game projects. She acted as both a Producer and a Server Developer for Fixer Studios and developed software and servers for X2 Biosystems, before opting to work solely on Stumbling Cat.

Stumbling Cat’s First Major Project

After developing smaller games and tools together, Renee decided to drive forward with a game idea that she had been developing for several years. The game, Potions: A Curious Tale, is designed to challenge the standard benefits of defeating enemies, requiring the player to weigh the benefits from defeating monsters against the cost of fighting them. In addition to the game, Renee has been keeping an informal video blog, Making Potions: A Tale of Game Development, about the game development process, aimed at showing prospective developers the ups and downs of game development. Once the initial systems and functionality for Potions were developed and implemented, Renee worked to build a strong team to bring the game to life. They are currently working together to create the mysterious and fantastic world of Potions.
