bullet pointCompany Background

Edge of Reality is a leading developer of core Free to Play and cross-platform retail games, including our new hit title, Loadout. Loadout pushes new ground in the Free to Play market, with tight and fast action gameplay, player-friendly monetization, innovative customization, stylish visuals, and provocative humor. We are also currently working on an unannounced title with a major publishing partner.

We have developed and made major contributions to multiple hit commercial titles over the course of our long history. As a result, the studio has a stable future. Edge of Reality is completely independent. We are free to work with any publisher on any platform.

Founded in 1998 and based in Austin, Texas, Edge of Reality has shipped 16 titles, selling over 20 million units. We have proven our ability to deliver popular high-quality original titles such as Loadout, and we are a valued development partner for major publishers on existing properties.

The studio is comprised of a good blend of talent across multiple levels of experience. There are no ego battles at Edge of Reality. Everyone works hard together for the common purpose of making the best games possible. Our tools and engine are proprietary and therefore highly customizable. We have comprehensive Maya-based world-building tools that enable the designer and artist to run with their vision. It is a proprietary toolset that gives simple access to sophisticated systems like AI, cinemas, and scenario design. This system removes the barriers between the designer and the implementation of their goals.

We offer competitive employment financial packages, a friendly work environment, and the chance to work on hit games. Employee benefits include medical, dental and vision insurance, 401(k), paid time off, and paid company holidays. Company social functions include boat parties, holiday parties, launch parties, movie nights, and picnics. Our office has a beautiful view of the hill country. Austin provides a high quality of life with affordable housing, good healthcare, numerous local colleges, and a wide variety of entertainment.
