Description

The goal of Catch & Release is to revive the complete, wholesome gaming experiences of our youth. We do not believe in predatory business practices, misleading advertising, or game designs that encourage gambling addiction. The games we create feature compelling plots, unforgettable characters, and challenging gameplay that's easy to learn but difficult to master.

History

The beginning

Catch & Release was first conceived in James's final weeks at the University of North Carolina. While waiting for an interview with a potential employer in a much safer and saner industry, he had an idea for a video game. James explained the idea to his brother Matthew, who encouraged him to take a "gap summer" to pursue the idea together. By December, the two brothers joined forces as Catch & Release and published their first game together: the sci-fi adventure Star Billions.

Since then

Star Billions earned praise from fans and major media outlets like Polygon and VentureBeat. A second season of the game arrived the following spring, and in 2017 the third and final season was released alongside a companion book. Catch & Release will next make the leap into virtual reality with puzzle shooter Cold Iron for Oculus Touch, HTC Vive, and PlayStation®VR.
