Uppercut GamesĀ is an independent video game development studio founded in 2011 by Ed Orman, Andrew James and Ryan Lancaster.

The trio have 38 years of combined experience, initially cutting their teeth on PC games like Fallout: Tactics, Freedom Force and Tribes: Vengeance before moving on to console games with Bioshock, Bioshock 2 and XCOM.

In 2012, Uppercut expanded to include John Travers, Taamati Te Rata and Evan Zachariadis, with Ben Driehuis joining in 2014.

Uppercut was formed to bring AAA quality to mobile and downloadable games.
