Trouble Impact, LLC is a two-person game studio located in Austin, TX. It was started in April 2012 by an animator and programmer (both formerly of Activision) who wanted to see what they could learn and make by striking out on their own. We are interested in expanding gaming in new directions by tackling new subject matter and exploring different types of gameplay.
