About Us

We love great games, and now we want to share them with you!

Hound Picked Games was born out of our love of discovering amazing indie games – original titles that we play and love, from passionate developers who share our values. As well as understanding what it takes to carry a game from an idea to a release date, we know what makes a great game.  It’s an exciting time for players and developers, with indie games receiving critical acclaim and huge audiences all over the world. Let Hound Picked Games be your guide to the best games that you’re about to play.

We don’t like to brag, but together we have centuries of gaming experience under our belts. We’ve transformed our knowledge as players into a publishing company with a difference. Being independent allows us to only work with developers who we believe in and co-publish games that we’d genuinely want to play ourselves. The results speak for themselves – award-winning titles with cult followings that have helped us make a name for ourselves in the gaming world. Every game we release is something that we’d be more than happy to purchase ourselves, and we hope our loyal fans feel the same way!

Many of the developers we work with are financing their projects through crowdfunding websites. We have helped our developers secure over $2.6 million in funding on Kickstarter, and we’re well versed in keeping backers up to date with their investments and helping them deliver their games, as is the case for, say, NAIRI: Tower of Shirin

If you’re a fan of indie games, you may already have encountered some of the titles we’ve been involved with. If you haven’t met us before, here are some of our favourite recent releases.

The next step for Hound Picked Games is bringing a new wave of titles to you. You can see what we’re working on by following us on social media, and if you’re playing (and loving) our games, give us a shout out using #SoundtheHound.
