Description

Playing games should be about great experiences. We are a crazy lot full of creativity with mixed personalities coming together to make games we'd like to play, so hopefully you will too.

Have you tried the squid? We think you'll find it decadent.

History

Beginnings

Gentleman Squid Studio is a sub-division of a company called JHT, Inc. In a time when JHT's primary business was in danger of having people "drift" away from the company, we proposed developing small indie games as a way to stay afloat. In an effort to save a talented team, JHT invested in its people by starting a gaming division. How awesome is that? A small team of seven was given an opportunity to potentially grow, employ more talent, and become self-sustaining.

Future

Who knows where the future will take us? We are just having fun trying to entertain people. We hope to grow and add more talent to the team so that we can make bigger games. We also desire to help out other indie developers in any way we can. Fabian, who talks in third person for press releases, is consistently looking for opportunities to help indie artists from every aspect of game development, including indie developers, musicians, programmers, as well as "traditional" artists. Gentleman Squid Studio is a business, but it is also our intention to give back to various charities and invest in the indie community. This is JHT's way, and as such is Gentleman Squid Studio's continued tradition.
