Awards & Recognition

  • "Honorable Mention in the Indie Revolution Expo 2015." IndieGameRiot.com, 19 July, 2015


Selected Articles

  • "Although Toby: The Secret Mine does seem similar to Limbo, it seems that Toby looks to build off what Limbo started, taking the idea of the indie platform-horror game to further heights."
    - IndieRuckus.com, IndieRuckus.com
  • "While the idea of a shadow character is a bit overused. I’m okay with games using it as long as they have a strong look and the gameplay to drive the game."
    - Michael Honore, lostvideogames.wordpress.com
