Here at Olympus Games, we’re gamers, modders, and developers. We don’t create games; instead, we work to make games better. We collaborate with game studios (many of whom directly advise the platform), mod developers, and the community to make mods easy to find, play, and share.
Four bachelors in game development and simulation, 3,000 man hours, and lifetimes of gameplay experience has brought to life the Gmod client. Our development team has spent years working on the algorithms needed to intuitively handle the robust processes and automation that our client offers.
The art team has diverse backgrounds spanning from the Seattle Art Institute to the Art Institute of Chicago. Having worked on everything from own graphic novels to video production, they bring a unique variety of perceptions and styles together. When asked to display their skillset, they drew a perfect circle…with an etch a sketch.
COMMUNITY MANAGEMENT TEAM
Our community managers get modders because they are modders. They have been developing and using mods for nearly a decade, so when they say they get mods they mean it. When not supporting the Gmod community or live-streaming on our Twitch channel they are thinking up new combinations of mods to try.
