Description

Wonderbelly is a Seattle-based independent game studio made up of Andrea Roberts and Kurt Loidl. We follow our hearts and our guts to make the tastiest games.

History

Kurt and Andrea each have worked for more than a decade in the videogame industry. They met while working together at Xbox way back in 2008. After work, they’d get together to make more games with XNA. They released three Xbox Indie games under the studio name Kindling Games.

At Xbox, Kurt worked as a cross between a programming SWAT team member and Winston Wolfe from Pulp Fiction. When a game project got derailed, he was the cavalry sent in to fix it. He later decided he’d rather work on a smaller team, and became gameplay lead for the iPad MOBA game, Solstice Arena. When that shipped, he got to work on his indie PC strategy game, Hellenica.

With a background in narrative, UX, and game design, Andrea worked at Xbox on everything from epic AAA games like Fable III and Ninja Gaiden II to the design of experimental prototypes for multi-screen experiences and interactive TV shows. A couple of years ago, Andrea had a daughter and decided to take a break to hang out with her baby and work on smaller projects. She helped Kurt finish up Hellenica, and when that shipped, they were ready to start fresh on their next collaboration: Roundguard.
