Beyond Tomorrow Studios is a narrative-driven indie games studio founded in 2023 by Julia Spinola and Harry Lee, both recent graduates of the National Film and Television School. Along with three other members of the team, they started the studio to create cozy games that resonate with Gen-Z audiences.
The studio's core values are creativity, experimentation, and pushing boundaries, and these values are reflected in their first game, Sleep Swimmer. The game secured funding from the UK Games Fund in 2023 and has been praised for its innovative approach to storytelling about mental health.
Beyond Tomorrow Studios is committed to creating games that resonate with Gen-Z women, the studio's target demographic. The team is passionate about exploring complex themes and emotions through immersive gameplay experiences, and they are constantly experimenting with new ideas and technologies to push the boundaries of what games can do.
The team at Beyond Tomorrow Studios is a close-knit group of friends from university, and their team culture reflects this. They value collaboration, creativity, and open communication, and they work together to create games that they are proud of. The studio is excited about the future and is already working on new games and projects that continue to push the boundaries of narrative-driven game design.
