Description

Hi, we're WeirdBeard Games – a six dev strong independent game studio based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Our games are a healthy mix of good, clean fun and our own quirky sense of humor. We like to make games that can be played by everyone, but still provide a bit of a challenge for those gamers who are more experienced. Right now we're putting the final touches on our first console / PC game - Tricky Towers! It's the spiritual successor to 99 Bricks: Wizard Academy which was released for iOS and Android in 2014. We enjoy playing games together here at the WeirdBeard office and so we're excited to bring a multiplayer game of our own to market.

History

Early Days

WeirdBeard was founded in 2007 and started of with the development of Flash Games, both our own IPs as well as advergames. Our focus lay with creating games that had something recognizable for the player and something fresh, games with a twist you could say.

Present Day

We have shifted from Flash development to Unity and are working on self publishing various titles in the coming years. From our studio in Amsterdam we develop games for promotional, educational and entertainment purposes.
