2 Hit Studio: games for the go-down-swingin' crowd. We're two brothers, Matt and Adam Carr, who grew up playing all kinds of games together and now are trying to give some of that joy back.


Early history

Both Adam and Matt have been hobbyist game developers since their early teens, but never worked together until the Global Game Jam in 2012. They discovered they made a strong team and formed 2 Hit Studio. Fatal Theory, a game Matt had been developing solo in his spare time, became their first project together.

After that

The two brothers stumbled forwards for a few years, hitting milestones and generally getting wise. An early version of Starslinger Kings began development in 2013, targeting the OUYA, but was scrapped. They shipped Fatal Theory in 2014, starting a Steam Greenlight campaign at the same time. 6 months later it was greenlit. Post Fatal Theory the two resurrected Starslinger Kings in 2014, completely redesigning it in the process. During its life, the two participated in many game jams, releasing small games on the side. The two were asked to develop a title for a travelling pop-up arcade, and One Heart was born. Over the course of an additional two months, it was turned into a complete niche title and released early 2015. Development on Starslinger Kings continues.
