About Us

Howling Hamster is 3 guys squashed into a nephew’s dining room trying to make a game. Basically we are living the dream. Trevor the artist, Manus the programmer and Steven the audio designer, got together in 2014 and started knocking around the idea for Sub-Species. 

We spent a couple of months working from home, getting some basic ideas, artwork and mechanics sorted out. Then in September, when we figured that we had something good, we took the plunge and begged the unused dining room in Manus’s nephew’s house. We moved in the equipment, 3 computers, a microphone and our trusty little 2 bar heater to keep winter at bay and have been working away ever since.

Gaming Platforms: PC / Windows, Android and Amazon.
