Fancy Fish Games is an indie game development studio, founded by David Maletz, his wife Natalie, and some friends who are all passionate about making video games. We are currently focusing on making 2D games in VIDE (our in-house animation engine), however we have made flash games in the past, and may create 3D games in the future. We are named Fancy Fish Games because we create whatever catches our fancy. Feel free to follow us, I hope that you enjoy our fancy games!
