Subliminal is an Albuquerque independent game studio focused on handcrafting whimsical and interactive experiences.
Subliminal was founded in 2011 by couple Ryan Leonski and Shandiin Woodward. Together the duo combined forces as programmer and artist and began creating games. They find inspiration in classic art and animation, Nintendo gaming, and most of all their three rambunctious pet cats. Their goal is to create colorful character based games that experiment with controls and gameplay. Ryan and Shandiin view themselves as modern artisans in a digital era and strive to challenge the conventions of the entertainment industry with their own homegrown approach. An important part of their philosophy is helping grow the indie game community in their home Albuquerque, NM. They made their first game in a week called Sky Cat, which was released on XBLIG. Sky Cat is now considered the prequel for Subliminal’s most recent game Sky Pets.OMFG
The Subliminal team are active game jam participants and during the GGJ 2014, Oh My Fat Guy (aka OMFG) was created. Initially made as a tiltable platformer, the game was reworked and become an endless roller. They released it as their first app for both iOS and Android.Sky Pets
Sky Pets has been Subliminal’s longest endeavor, starting out as a simple game for XBLIG called Sky Cat and then transforming into what it is today. Sky Pets was influenced by Ryan and Shandiin’s love for cats and playful nintendo games like Mario and the Mii Maker. They wanted to create a colorful mobile experience that was also a thrilling platformer. Sky Pets is currently nearing the end of development and will be released Spring 2015.Recent
