About the company:

Thunderful Development is a studio that is part of Thunderful games, and was formed by several indie companies coming together to make something more significant than they could have done independently.

The teams within have developed the award-winning SteamWorld series, known for its frequent genre-hopping and inclusive design, and more recent AA games like The Gunk, Lost in Random, and other un-announced but equally charming titles.
