Description

Steel Crate Games is a small, multi-award winning Ottawa-based game studio.

History

During Global Game Jam 2014, Ben, Allen, and Brian teamed up to make a small game about defusing a bomb in virtual reality. When the idea proved to be hilarious, they decided to pursue the project full-time and develop the concept into the game it is today: Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes.

Since then, the team has happily relocated to the Ottawa Capital Game Hub and has even expanded, welcoming their first full-time employee in 2017.

Today, Steel Crate Games continues to work on bringing Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes to new players and platforms.
