The three founders of Piccolo Studio have been together for 23 years, working from sunny Barcelona.
We developed interactive experiences for big brands worldwide for years, 17 of which through our own company.

Making video games had always been a childhood dream, so we went for it.
Starting from scratch on a risky industry was a leap of faith, something many people advised us not to do, but we were looking for that missing spark in our lives. If you fail, at least fail while doing what you like.

We didn’t have much experience, so we recruited some talented, veteran members of the Spanish scene that shared our romantic vision of video games. We say we don’t make video games, we craft them. This is why our logo shows a needle and a thread.

We hope to meet you many times along our journey.

After Us

Explore the corners of a surrealistic post-human world to give life on Earth a second chance in this touching story about sacrifice and hope.

Play as Gaia, the Spirit of Life, and navigate stunning platforming environments in an abstract world to salvage the souls of extinct animals. Revive these creatures after learning their final fate: the last whale harpooned, the final eagle caged, the last deer hunted down, and more, while you survive encounters with dangerous, oil-covered Devourers that roam the wasteland in search of remaining life.

Arise: A simple story

Us reflecting on our lives directly inspired our game and it’s only natural that it deals with love and time, as we’re not that young anymore.

This is a deeply personal project for us, a part of our own journey as we pursue our dream. The fact that we have years of various life experiences helped a ton. We drew from them to tell a story that we hope will strike a chord with you. We genuinely can’t wait for you to play through it.
