Releasing Q2 2024

Available Now!
A semi-cooperative, prisoner’s dilemma, hand management, and secret action-taking survival game.


In We're Sinking, you and your crewmates manage a ship that's come under attack by a fearsome foe. With water pouring in, stowed-away treasures made up of glittering gems and useful items begin floating to the surface. You'll need to bucket rising water, patch breaches to keep the ship afloat, and fire cannons to defeat the enemy. Or... be a greedy pirate and plunder precious loot! Either way, you'll need to work together to perform urgent tasks or lie to manipulate for your own selfish goals. Will you save the ship or save yourself?
