About the studio

Spaces of Play UG (haftungsbeschränkt) is an independent game studio based in Berlin, Germany. We aim to close the gap between stunning visual worlds and experimental game play. We released Future Unfolding in 2017, which has received funding from Indie Fund + Friends, as well as from the MEDIA Programme of the European Union and Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg.
