About Broadside Games

Broadside Games was founded in Brisbane, Australia in 2021 and for the majority of the production, the team was made up of a modest three developers, John, Garth and Dan. With the release of Bears in Space, they hope to grow their studio even further and become a well-known name in the Australian game development scene. Bears In Space will be Broadside Games’ debut release, although co-owner John Eyre has previous industry experience having worked on Hand of Fate 2 and the award winning The Forgotten City. For the first few years of development, Bears in Space was a passion project being worked on by studio leads Garth and John in their spare time. With the help of an Epic Mega Grant they were able to give the game more time and eventually entered into a partnership with PLAION, allowing Bears in Space to go into full production and expanding the studio by bringing on Dan, the third core member of the studio.
