Description

QuadraTron Games is a small independent game development studio from Philadelphia and located at the game development co-working space the Philly Game Forge. We are inspired by the beautiful and the challenging. We continue to chase this dream of fun.

History

Beginnings
Informally founded by Zenas Bellace, Keith Maggio, and Christian Plummer, we started off as a small group of game developers who met at the Global Game Jam back in 2011. We continued to meet regularly over weekends in a similar game jam style, the results of which were often very education and quite entertaining.

QuadraJams
We also make a point of working together at the Global Game Jam, the Philly Game Jam, and sometimes even get together remotely for events such as Ludum Dare.
While we don’t often meet for our own game jam weekend much these days, we all still continue to work closely with each other and bounce our ideas off each other.

Monsters!
In 2012 Zenas worked with Travis Carter to create a dual stick shooter game called Monsters! With the help of a successful Kickstarter campaign, they released the game in April of 2013. Monsters! was released through several distribution platforms, namely Desura, Itch.io, the Mac App Store, and the Windows App Store.

Philly Game Forge
With the founding of the Philly Game Forge, QuadraTron was one of four game studios to inhabiting the first, and only, game development co-working space. Both Zenas and Christian are active members of the development community in Philadelphia, looking to share their love of playing and creating games with fellow like minded developer in the area.

Threshold
Threshold was developed during the Global Game Jam 2014. Some of the original team have gotten back together and in cooperation with QuadraTron Games are currently re-developing the game from the ground up.
