For 8 years Aubrey Serr worked on Wolfire games like Overgrowth and Receiver, but in 2015 he decided to depart on a journey into making his own games. After a year of experimental prototypes, 12 East Games was founded in order to fully develop something new.
Trackless is an atmospheric first-person exploration and puzzle game set in the distant future. The game utilizes a new art style and a fresh take on classic adventure games. In November 2016, Trackless completed a successful crowdfunding campaign hosted by fig.com. It was launched less than a year later in September 2017 and is available on Steam. After release, Trackless was selected to appear at Busan Indie Connect, where it was nominated for the grand prize. The game currently enjoys a 90% positive rating on Steam.
Next, Kickstarter selected 12 East’s collaborative fortune telling experience TAROT: A Game of Fortune for Projects We Love. Released in December 2019, this innovative physical tarot deck includes stunning all original art for the Major Arcana and a new, simple system for telling fortunes that anyone can learn in minutes.
Always interested in pushing boundaries and testing new technology, 12 East Games created a native app called Everyday Matter for the Apple Watch. Released in March 2020 this free mindfulness app is designed to help the user connect to the world around them by presenting objects one may find that day, and inspiring quotes that relate to those objects.
In addition to major releases, 12 East Games has helped other developers by providing level design or art for their projects. You can learn more about how 12 East approaches level design by watching Aubrey Serr’s GDC Talk, which has been viewed over 100,000 times.
12 East is currently working on its next project, which they are keeping under wraps for now, but expect exciting news in the future.
