About Us

From Nothing Game Studios is an indie development team started by a team of game design students based in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis & St. Paul metro area), Minnestoa.

Over the course of eight months in 2012, the team essentially went "from nothing" to a completed game released for Android devices through Google Play. After a brief hiatus at the end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013 (where a few members were focusing on finishing school), part of the team took part in the 2013 Global Game Jam and then began work on a new project and decided on their overall company focus.

From Nothing Game Studios then moved towards a research and development practice as students entered the working world.  Releasing their game GravBlocks on Nintendo's Wii U and Valve's Steam platforms in 2015.

One of the founders, Paul Metcalf, throughout the years had put together several tactical combat systems (5 total), before solidifying a product with one; this lead to a 3 year passion project which released in 2019 as Tactics V: "Obsidian Brigade" utilizing some connections outside of the studio for music composition and 3d modeling.  

After seeing many hardships, but surviving into a post COVID-19 world, partners Paul Metcalf, and Roberto Diaz remain, and have plans and projects and connections going forward.
