Ceiba Software & Arts is an indie game development studio located in Costa Rica. We began operations in 2015 with two projects: Voxel Blast and Project S.O.O.T. We are focused in IP with emphasis in artistic experimentation, that’s why we are constantly prototyping and testing the boundaries of different ideas and genres.
We believe games are a form of art in itself, with special properties no other discipline can convey. A game has the potential to create a strong reflective experience, it has the power to question our values and principles, to shake our foundations, to change our perspective about life, the universe and ourselves.
Sure, a game can be entertaining, an escape, but it can also be terrifying, profound, disruptive, introspective, transformative. We want all that for our games. We want to create experiences that leave a permanent mark in our players hearts.
