Crew

We are an indie studio, but most importantly we are four people. If you want to get to know us, here’s our story. You can also find out what the name Urustar means.

What We Do

We design and make games for every platform. We love digital games, board games, pervasive games and we try to bring our love into our projects.

How We Work

If you are considering our expertise for a project of your own, maybe you want to check our ethics manifesto. If you find a common ground, we’ll be happy to hear from you.

Clients and Partners

Even if we are indie, we do a lot of contract work and we also team with other people and companies in order to create the best we can – for our clients and for our players.

Stand back, we're trying science!
