Before We Leave is a city building game set in your own cosy corner of the universe. Rediscover and rebuild civilisation. Create a multi-planet resource network. Overcome ancient challenges and fend off hungry Space Whales.
We’re an award-winning Kiwi game development studio based in Dunedin (Ōtepoti), Aotearoa New Zealand. We are the creative minds behind Before We Leave, a strategic, non-violent city building game that allows players to build immersive interplanetary civilisations at their own pace.
Our aim is twofold - to create accessible, inclusive games that spark a sense of wonder and exploration; and to make good games that enable us to better support our local communities.
As we grow in size and reputation, we endeavour to give back to our community, supporting environmentalism, diversity and providing opportunities to underrepresented groups within the games industry and outside of it, too.
Stay up to date with our latest game updates, studio news and more! Join us on our intergalactic journey jam packed with progress reports and general monkey musings.
As an Indie game studio, we aim to uplift all those around us, sharing any knowledge, skills and financial opportunities that we as a company are able to provide our community.
We love hearing your gameplay feedback. Through your suggestions, our team shapes the development of new features, decorations and resources for Before We Leave.
