Description

Northway Games is Colin and Sarah Northway, a husband and wife indie team who travel the world making games. No, really: Northway Games has set up shop in places as wide ranging as Costa Rica, the Philippines, Panama, Honduras, Mexico, Malta and Japan. They are now semi-stationary in Vancouver, Canada where they have room to stretch out and work on roomscale VR games.

History

Origin

In 2008, Sarah and Colin were living in San Francisco. Sarah was working on MMOs for a company called Three Rings (now owned by SEGA), while Colin toiled away on a game called Fantastic Contraption. Even though the two loved San Francisco, when Contraption saw success, they decided to take a chance and cut loose. They sold everything but their laptops, quit their day jobs, and started traveling and making games full time.

Games

In addition to Fantastic Contraption, the Northways have produced a lot of fun games while traveling the world: Incredipede, the Rebuild series, Word Up Dog, and a few other cool indie experiments, like Shader, the game that only exists on a single, Internet-and-external-connection-free laptop.
