Back of Nowhere studios was founded in July 2017 by Daniel Paul Griffin (myself) in Bedourie Queensland Australia.

My aim as a small independant studio is to produce high quality content for niche gaming markets.

As a big fan of 'Astro Lander' games I have struggled to find high quality examples that incorporate the accessibility and usability features we have all come to expect, with the simplicity and focus of the original games. Arcade Moonlander is an attempt to provide such a product. A high quality, modern experience that is still heavily rooted in traditional medium. The game has been designed and redesigned with many factors in mind. One relvelation during development was that a majority of gamers in 2017 have never played an original Astro Lander style game and are therefore not accustomed to the unforgiving mechanics. As a result Arcade Moonlander has been tailored to provide a faster, more dynamic play experience with an emphasis on speed and maneuverability. Arcade Moonlander store page on Steam.
