Game Development

Based in Austin, Texas, Minicore Studios was founded in February 2011 with a simple mantra - Make games we love and you’ll love them too. As a company and a team, Minicore is obsessed with unique narratives, characters, and settings.

Indie Developer making mobile and PC/Downloadable games

What we offer

We would like to invite you to visit our kiosk (K2) at GDC Play, where you will be able to play our strategic, word puzzler, Tumblewords which is currently available in the App Store. We will also be showcasing two demos for our upcoming PC/Downloadable Console title, Laika Believes.

Tumblewords has been complimented for it’s “understated tile mechanics [that] come together to form a rock solid word creation game” by AppSpy. Tumblewords has been summed up as “"Beautiful design; challenging gameplay; unique spin on well known word games" by SlideToPlay.

Laika Believes is a 2D, narrative driven, platformer that can be easily described with the shorthand “A 2D Bioshock”, but it’s so much more than just that.

What we are looking for

GDC Play is a great opportunity for us to showcase our games to other members of the industry and receive a level of feedback that we can't get ay other conferences. We would love the opportunity to speak with other indies, publishers, and platform representatives, but GDC is all about meeting other members of our community - so please just stop by and play our games!
