Wideload Games for Wide-screen Minds
Once upon a time, video games were a new art form offering new experiences. There were no genres, no rules, no expectations. Game developers were like wild beasts, free to follow their muse wherever it led. But even as the market for games grew and the technological palette expanded, games themselves seemed to shrink into a handful of tried-and-true categories. What was once a jungle teeming with possibilities had become a small patch of dry grass.
Wideload develops new video games the old-fashioned way: take a few talented but weird people, lock them in a room with some complex electronics for a few years, and see what happens. The games that emerge from this process are unique beasts - and like the mighty hippopotamus, they are not easily categorized or constrained. Games like Stubbs the Zombie, Hail to the Chimp, Cyclomite and Texas Cheat'em have charmed demanding gamers around the world. Now, after their recent move to Disney Interactive Studios, Wideload is busily staking out a beautiful new patch of the creative jungle. If you are put off by other video games, you may find our work refreshingly different. Open your mind... wide.
