About Us

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!
