Our Giving Pledge

Worldspark Studios took five years of blood, sweat, and digging-into-the-retire-account-money to finally materialize. Coming from indie roots and knowing the lessons learned from that journey, we’re committed to helping other studios accomplish their dreams.

  • All employees receive 40 paid hours per year to dedicate to indie projects that interest them, whether that’s simple advisory or contributing to development.

  • Every quarter, three indie projects will receive $1,000 each to help jump-start development.

We believe that the gaming world has taken a dark turn since our younger days. To combat this worrying trend, Worldspark Studios will be donating 1% of our profits to non-profit partners that look to empower STEM programs, discourage toxicity, and reignite the fellowship that games have the unique power to create.
