Redbeet Interactive is a small studio founded in 2017. It is based in Skövde, Sweden, and consists of four graphics artists, two programmers, a community manager and an intern.

Raft is their only creation.

History[edit | edit source]

The original team all attended the Game Design program at Uppsala University, Campus Gotland, where Raft was conceived as a student project for the course Game Design in Practice (GDiP). The project was conceived as a response to the course's main goal: "Identifying a market need, prototyping a game to be tested by that market and examining the steps needed to launch a new business project"[1].

After its popularity increased, André Bengtsson, Ellen Mellåker, and Semih Parlayan decided to make their studio: Redbeet Interactive. After some time, they decided to expand the team.
