Description

Specializing in irreverent pixelart games for the lols.

History

Once upon a time...

In early 2012, drawing from a decade of experience in corporate life, bignic created the game "Zombies." It was an effort to manage stress and vent frustration... It didn't work. It turns out that programming, creating art assets, voice acting, and composing the soundtrack for a game is a non-trivial task and bignic fell into a burnt out depression. After a brief recovery period, bignic polished the game and launched "Corporate Lifestyle Simulator" in early 2014 as an expansion pack as Dolphin Barn's first software product. The game was well received and the soundtrack was nominated for a number of awards. After launch, bignic immediately began working on "Domina", a gladiator simulation game that involves political wrangling, training and outfitting gladiators for battle, and eventually pitting them against enemies in the arena.
