About Thunderful:

Thunderful Development, a Thunderful Studio part of Thunderful Games is a relatively new company but with old roots. Thunderful Development was formed by several small indie companies coming together to make something more significant than they could have done independently. Over the last few years, Thunderful Development has grown into four different offices, with roughly 140 people making games in team sizes between 15-35 people. The teams within have developed the award-winning SteamWorld series, known for its frequent genre-hopping and inclusive design, and more recent AA games like The Gunk, Lost in Random, and other un-announced but equally charming titles.
