A bit about Us


858 Games started from three people's love for games and was conceived in late 2015 by Alex J Conradie. As we are not a registered company yet, our official name is Alex J Conradie t/a 858 Games (not optimal but it will have to do for now).  

Our goal is to create well made games, no matter how small or big the scope of the project and always try to implement every feature promised. We are all still learning and improving our skills as we are self-taught in the skills that we now bring to the table. We aim to prove that one does not need a long list of qualifications to be successful. Passion and love for what we do keeps us motivated and working ever toward our goals.

Even though at this time we can only work on the initiative part time (with little to no funding), we hope to become a truly independent developer in the not too distant future. Hopefully we can forge new relationships with the people who play our games as well as those who support us. As many indie developers may know, funding is usually what keep most from doing it full-time and in a booming market saturated with 'good enough' content, it can be difficult to get noticed.
