We’re thrilled to share that we’ve raised $5.5 million in seed funding from an amazing group of investors, friends, and family.

With their support, we’ll be ramping up development on our first title: a PvP-driven shooter inspired by some of our all-time favorites in the genre.

Since we announced Mountaintop in June, our team has grown to nearly 20 full-time Mountaineers. Our remote-first workplace has made it possible for us to bring together veterans from some of the best studios in the world: Epic, Blizzard, Naughty Dog, Respawn, Infinity Ward, Ubisoft, Raven, Turtle Rock, Double Fine, PopCap, and Oculus.

We’re looking for more outstanding individuals who believe game development should be collaborative, anti-crunch, diverse, and inclusive. If you’re interested in joining the team, we’d love to hear from you! You can check out our full list of job openings here.

These early days of ideation, playtesting, and iteration have been an absolute thrill. We’re really excited for what comes next, and we can’t wait to share more details later this year.
