A Tiny Game Studio with Big Dreams

Optimistic Games is a small one-person indie game studio that doesn’t pretend to be anything else. Despite having only a single full-time developer the game titles under development regularly recruit amazingly talented contributors that while new or unknown in the industry are both incredibly skilled and valuable. It is our hope that the community will value our time and our dedication to providing well-polished game experiences, and join us in our effort to build a community interested in seeing each other succeed.
