Our story

Torn Banner began with a group of mod enthusiasts who dreamed of creating games that needed to exist, and would stop at nothing to bring the ultimate version of them to market.

A team comes together to blend the FPS, Fighting Game & Third Person Action genres and deliver the first multiplayer melee slasher.

Chivalry is released and becomes the best-selling Steam game during the week of Christmas 2012.

While not a commercial success, from Mirage we learned a great deal about production & managing creative vision within our team.

Today

Torn Banner is looking to expand our team while we aim to grow to the scale of our creative potential and shift to multi-project productions.

Our Culture

We aim to foster collaborative & flexible environments in which our creativity will thrive in! We look to find ways to cater to and best support our teammates and their particular needs as individuals.

Innovation

Today, we’re continuing to add to the smash hit Chivalry 2 while developing new unannounced projects. We’re looking to grow our team – but stay collaborative, indie and agile. We’re on the hunt for new team members that share a passion for cutting edge gaming and want to help create innovative new experiences that focus on challenge and fun.

Collaboration & Agility

Each individual at Torn Banner has a huge impact on the final product that we put out. We put emphasis on being open with each other, giving/receiving critical feedback, and not letting a false sense of authority cloud our vision. The more eyes and input that we have from different disciplines and personality types, the better our releases will be.
