History

Rowan McPaddles is Monstronauts' second official title. It started out as a simple boating game named Paddle Peril, and evolved into what it is today. The prototype was started by a studio intern on June 6, 2016.

Rowan McPaddles is our team's first foray into 3D. With it, we aimed to further refine our art style while creating something that resonates with us as gamers. We wanted it to be familiar, yet different in our own way. What should have taken mere months to develop took us two years because we were looking for that perfect balance.

Rowan McPaddles was the perfect avenue to apply our learnings from our release experience with Potion Punch. Using our past mistakes, a lot of passion, and a veritable truckload of coffee, we finally have a game that looks and feels like ‘Monstronauts’.

Hopefully our game is able to clearly convey all of this, but most all, we hope that people just enjoy the living heck out of it!

Live. Die. Row-peat!
