Surprise Attack Games is an independent games label based in Australia. It works with amazing creators to bring remarkable, weird and unique games to discerning players worldwide.
You may know us from the hacking game that uses real unix commands (Hacknet), the weekly episodic thriller that puts you in the shoes of Big Brother (Orwell), the multiplayer split-screen shooter where everyone is invisible (Screencheat), or the dystopian steampunk mini-golf adventure game (Vertiginous Golf).
Launched in July 2013, the label supports independent developers by providing a full publishing team, bringing expertise and resources to their games while leaving creative control in the developers hands. Surprise Attack Games doesn’t own any share of the IP and the developer always has the final say.
Our team is exclusively staffed by gamers and lead by industry veterans. We left the AAA world behind because we love the explosion of creativity in the independent scene and the freedom that comes with being small and creative.
We work on all kinds of games for all major platforms but the core criteria is that they must bring something new or different to the table. We want to surprise players.
