Perfect Garbage is an independent video game studio based in Chicago, though its members are located across the globe. Consisting of a handful individuals from diverse backgrounds, Perfect Garbage works to create games that add new perspectives. Formed in 2019, our first game Love Shore was successfully kickstarted and is currently in production.
Our mission is simple: tell stories we've always wanted to see, the way we want to tell them. We create games with LGBT+ POC characters at the center. We want to explore genres we've grown used to in new and exciting ways. Despite being a small group, we are incredibly hard working and enjoy teaming up with freelancers to create amazing visuals and sounds.
Also, dang, we really love horror.
