Description

We're Frenemies, creating games to enjoy together - as friends or as enemies! Currently developing Defend Your Friend, a truly co-operative puzzle game for two players.

History

Creating Frenemies

Before founding Frenemies, we worked as a team together on Defend Your Friend - which started off as one of our school projects. Due to the positive feedback it received, and our interest in going further with the game, we formed a company with part of the team that wanted to continue. And thats us: Frenemies!

Current situation

Right now we're a team of 7 game developers, consisting of three programmers, two artists and two designers/generalists. We're developing Defend Your Friend which we aim to release the second half of 2017 (More precise date TBA).
