About us

We are PlayThis, a german Indie Games Studio with the goal of producing high quality Indie games with fresh and new ideas. Founded in 2018 by two former students with a bachelor’s degree in Game Design. We are currently developing an indie game in a survival setting – further informations to be announced first quarter of 2019.

We also like bad jokes – likes this.. this is a bad joke.
