Description

Topstitch Games is an independent development team based in Seattle, WA. Our mantra: focused, inventive games with craftsmanship that shows.

History

Treadnauts: Tank to the Skies!

Caelan Pollock created the original Treadnauts prototype as a passion project while studying English at the University of Washington. Topstitch first met Caelan at the UW Game Development Club where he shared the project, then called "Tank to the Skies"--it was love at first flight. We quickly joined forces to build and publish Treadnauts as a team.

The First Year

Just before meeting Caelan, Nick and Reed quit their day jobs with a few months of runway and a game plan in January 2017. Topstitch Games spent most of the first year building high-tech games for private clients, chiseling away at Treadnauts as a labour of love during nights and weekends. When we released the Treadnauts public alpha in September, we were blown away by the reception that we got from thousands of excited players. With bright eyes and good data, we shut down our contracting business to go all-in on Treadnauts in October 2017.
