How far will you go?

Obverse Studios is a newly-found independent games company, formed by a small group of students studying at Bournemouth University.

The team’s focus shifted towards creating original IPs in late 2016 with the introduction to Time Breaker. Obverse Studios hopes to develop the therapeutic application in the upcoming years whilst creating passionate games on multiple platforms!
