Astral Clocktower Studios is a women-owned independent game development studio based in the Northeast US. Founded in 2018 by Alexis Brutman, Tiffany Gomez, and Sarah Schaffstall, the ACS dev team has since grown into a rich and diverse family of over 30 creators hailing from all over the world.
Of this wildly talented team, over 30% identify as female, and our female members oversee and lead over 70% of the individual areas of development for the studio—including Production, Game Design, Level Design, Narrative Design, and Marketing.
The Astral Clocktower culture and key pillars are centered around celebrating diversity, equality, and inclusion in the traditionally male-dominated gaming space. We encourage an “open door” atmosphere, free from judgement, that celebrates the vast and diverse cultures our team members represent and bring to our family.
We hope to bring a unique voice and fresh perspective to the gaming industry and strive to inspire gamers from all walks of life with diverse and relatable characters, immersive storylines, impactful themes, and smart gameplay mechanics.
