A Little Bit About Us

Here everyone is important and together we aim to make the best quality games while having fun doing it. For us it’s all about atmosphere, playfulness and quality.

Last year we celebrated our 10 year anniversary, and it was a year that also saw the release of our first two original games - Statik and Little Nightmares. Both games were critically successful and show that there is an audience for the kind of games Tarsier want to make.
