About Tough Guy Studios
Tough Guy Studios is a tiny independent game studio located in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Fuelled by a strong desire to create unique emotional experiences, be it in small arcade style games or in large scale psychological fairytale story games, the Tough Guys always go their own way. Inspired by literature, avant-garde movies, childhood memories and conversations in smoke filled bar rooms, the Tough Guys create experiences that feel truly fresh and unique.
The Tough Guy manifesto emphasizes that the gaming experience follows the Pareto distribution: 20% is induced by gameplay and 80% by the players imagination and emotions. The TGS games are all created with a tremendous respect for the medium and for the player. The game must always tickle the players conceptions and transcend the actual gaming experience.
Tough Guy Studios is run by three tough tireless fireballs, Morten Sommer, who comes with years of experience from working in the game/visual experience field, working both in self-founded start-ups and acclaimed companies such as Unity Technologies. He dreams about the mental pictures he got when playing games as a kid and wants to give back the feeling that a game was more in your imagination than on the screen. Lasse Sommer, brother, master of ideas, and artistic genius behind graphics and sound for Tough Guy Studios. And Christian Lauth, an old school philosopher, entrepreneur and marketing guru trapped in a younger man's body.
