What we do

One of our games: Crypt of the NecroDancer
Who we are
Brace Yourself Games was founded by veteran indie developer Ryan Clark in 2013. It’s only appropriate that our Vancouver-based independent game studio was named for a programmer pun that could only come from his shiny, bald head
At Brace Yourself Games, we take pride in being the “indie katamari”, “rolling up” some of the best talent in the industry.
From our first game, Crypt of the NecroDancer, which was released in 2015, we’ve relied on our incredibly skilled team to make the magic happen. Since then, we’ve expanded our repertoire to include Cadence of Hyrule, Industries of Titan, and Phantom Brigade – games with distinctive styles and designs, but developed with the same philosophy and heart.
Our goal is to make standout games. We try new things, hold ourselves to a high standard, and make improvements when we make mistakes. What’s important is that you can always count on us to deliver in the end.
