Taking Names and Making Games.

Akupara Games is a collective of indie game veterans (mostly) in Los Angeles, CA.

We formed out of a need for a developer and publisher that understood the trials and joys of creating indie games.

Games are our passion, and we treat each of your projects as if they were our own. We customize campaigns and build teams unique to each idea.

Our goal is to make indie development and publishing painless and rewarding so you can focus on your idea and seeing your game brought to life.
