Fishing Cactus

We are from rainy Belgium, Mons, Wallonia. Belgians may be known for not having a government but we have awesome beers and chocolate. At Fishing Cactus, it also happens that 25 of us craft games with their hearts. Games which are, we hope, more than forgettable escapism, games leaving you with a feeling of change. Games we like to make, games we like to play.

Our current focus is on PC / Console and VR titles. We are known for our typing games franchise Epistory and Nanotale but we are working on even more ambitious projects.

If you like beer (or not), waffles, are talented, honest and autonomous and you want to pour his / her heart & soul in our next games, apply now !
