History

Sature

In 2015, Herringbone Games released it's first game, Sature under the banner, S.S. 64 Games. Sature received to a strong critical response, including a write-up on KillScreen. The game was also honored with a "Best New Games" feature on Apple's' App store as well as being included in CNET's "Best Mobile Games of March 2015".

Stacks On Stacks (On Stacks)

In 2016, the Ian Sundstrom and Elie Abraham, who had collaborated together on Sature, decided they wanted a more personal label for their work that reflected their small team size. Thus, they renamed themselves Ian & Elie. Together they worked on Stacks On Stacks (On Stacks). In 2019, Ian Sundstrom discontinued working with Elie and renamed the studio Herringbone Games.
