Incube8 Games 

A subsidiary of Retro Modding, Incube8 Games was launched in 2021 with the aim of facilitating the publishing of retro video game cartridges, mainly for 8-bit handheld consoles. Supported by Retro Modding’s expertise and supply chain, Incube8 Games offers turnkey publishing solutions for physical releases from the custom cartridges and PCBs to the boxes and games manuals.

Spacebot Interactive

Spacebot Interactive is an indie developer who initially garnered interest with Dragonborne, an adventure RPG released in 2020, which has gone on to be one of the most successful indie Game Boy games in terms of sales. Spacebot Interactive is the official producer for Genesis.

Ben Jelter

Ben Jelter is an independent artist and game developer based out of Burlington, VT. His inspirations include surrealism, sci-fi, history, and game theory.

The Game Boy was Ben's first console. Making a game on the system would have been a childhood dream if he believed it to be possible. Ben enjoys developing Game Boy games because the limitations of the system encourage a process of subtractive design.

Ben's previous games include Opossum Country, Unearthed, The Last Employee, Sidius Nova, and Primary Particle. Ben's comics include The Tumor, Heroin Harry, The Plane Crashes, and the massive sci-fi series Heliosphere. You can find Ben's illustrations in the art book Pictures for Brains.

The Machine

In The Machine, you’ll have the opportunity to pursue numerous different storyline paths in an original dystopian world, exploring the inner workings of a gigantic machine and the people who inhabit it in the throes of an election that could dramatically shape the future. In this hierarchical society, your place in the world is determined at a young age through an aptitude test, which will allow you to experience each playthrough as a factory worker, a police officer, or more. Get to know those around you, and make decisions that could dramatically impact the future of your home and its inhabitants.
