Astral Byte was founded in New Zealand by a small group of dedicated gamers who were tired of the current trend in new games. Companies are increasingly using things like restrictive DRM, exclusive release day DLC and missing features that were promised but never delivered. We aspire to create games that are fun to play and not solely driven by profit margins. In addition, we strive to support Linux when possible.
