Atom Switch, Inc.is a small team of experienced game developers making our dream game – INFESTSTATION -a cooperative, PvE dystopian sci-fi game made in Unreal Engine 5. Backed by investor funding, we have none of the frustrating constraints of a traditional publisher-funded development model. With total agency over the game’s design and no needless push for micro-transactions or other “profits over quality” mandates, we are making a game for ourselves as much as for our players.
We have no room or tolerance for jerks, “alpha” personalities, or glory hounds. As everyone on the team has a voice and real, tangible ownership over the design of the game, we especially love cross-discipline backgrounds and emphasize cooperation over competition.
Lets Work Together!

About Atom Switch Inc.
Brothers and sisters of the Atom, we are a collective of senior developers united under the singular urge to make good games. No strangers to the ugly side of the industry, that kind of toxicity has no home here. Quality of life isn’t just important to us as a pillar of design – it’s a pillar of healthy game development.
A DIY sensibility and an insatiable urge to create drive us forward while humility and compassion keep us fom floating out past the ionosphere. AAA meets indie as our focus on quality over quantity and emergent fun over railroaded decision-faking lets us make amazing experiences without the blood-sacrifice the industry seems to think of as the status quo.
