Founded in 2013, Steel Wool Studios brings decades of creative production experience from companies like Pixar, Intel and TellTale Games. We are a multi-facet Games and VR production studio.

We are one of the original studios that created content for the Valve VR prototype in 2015. We have shipped well reviewed VR projects: Quar Battle for Gate 18, Mars Odyssey, Bounce, Warhammer 40k Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calth, Ready Player One: Battle for the Oasis and our upcoming Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted.

We helped create an extensive VR installation for NASA’s Kennedy Space Center which was unveiled last Fall that incorporates complex Co-Op gameplay in a location based attraction ride.

From large IP games like Warhammer, Ready Player One and Five Nights at Freddy’s, to smaller internally developed games like Bounce and Quar, to contract projects for Google and Nvidia. We are a team that can design, create and deliver.







We started Steel Wool Studios (previously Steel Wool Games) to pursue our personal passions — and our projects are a reflection of our diverse interests — from space exploration to whimsical creatures in pitched battles, we create what we ourselves love. Check out what we have released so far below and stay tuned for more great content later this year!

Crouching down, I was able to see it (Quar: Battle for Gate 18) from their point of view; when I turned my head, just in time to see a cannon explode with a puff of smoke, I almost went to blow it away before remembering that it wasn’t really there.
