Description

Kitsune Games is an inclusive indie video game development microstudio, lead by Emma 'Eniko' Maassen. Kitsune Games is set apart by its queer founder, and the aim to produce games that are as inclusive as possible. Entertainment producers have a responsibility to make the world a better place, and Kitsune Games strives to do so by offering quality entertainment that offers representation of people from all walks of life and backgrounds.

History

Before Kitsune Games

Having grown up in a programmer's home around video games, Emma was always interested in making games herself. At age 15 - after both her father and brother had given up teaching her programming due to her stubborn streak - she decided to teach herself programming. The next 15 years were spent practicing various disciplines such as programming, art and graphic and web-design.

Founding

The idea of Kitsune Games came in December 2012, while living in Japan. MidBoss - made for Ludum Dare - made a small splash among friends and other Ludum Dare developers, despite Emma having spent one of three days partying and staying up all night at karaoke. Seeing people enjoy the game cemented the decision to become a fulltime independent developer. After 15 years of making games, this came as a surprise to no one but Emma herself.

Kitsune Games LLC

In 2016 Kitsune Games LLC was created in the United States.
