About Firing Pin Games

Based in the sunny seaside town of Brighton England, Firing Pin Games is an independant games developer founded by Alex Dawson in 2012.

Alex Dawson is the backbone/heart of the company fulfilling artwork, design, management and programming roles and drawing upon his network of games industry veterans to form an extensible team structure based on the demands of any given project. Keeping the core team small allows the company to adapt quickly to change.

The aim is simple, to make fun games, enjoy making them and survive the apocalypse.
