Description

At Forbidden Folds we create focused interactive experiences, pushing simple ideas to their extreme without overstaying their welcome. Our worlds are immediately recognizable and engaging, staying in your head and heart, even after you stopped playing. With unlimited passion and a few forbidden tricks, we make magical experiences unfold right before your eyes. We formed in 2018 during our studies while individually working on a variety of projects including games, animated films, and AR / VR experiences. Instead of doing the reasonable thing and getting stable jobs, we decided to go independent and are now, naturally aiming for world domination.

History

2018-2021

After finishing our studies, instead of doing the reasonable thing and getting stable jobs, we decided to go independent and formed our own Studio, Forbidden Folds. Since then we are developing WHALIEN, a 3rd Person Puzzle Adventure set aboard a mechanical whale.
