Founded by a family of six siblings with disciplines spanning all fields of game development, ZanMgt is a new indie game studio based in Traverse City, MI. With an unparalleled trust in each others abilities, we are determined to make the kind of quality games everyone loved and grew up with during those golden years of gaming. We’re very excited to be joining the ranks of indie pioneers already out there, and believe we have some great things in store for everyone. --The ZanMgt team, Zack, Aaron, Nathan, Micah, Gabriel, Terah
