The Beginning

Steamroller Studios is a small indie team made up of a few industry professionals. Together we have decades of experience. With movies such as Avatar, The Hobbit, The Avengers, and How to Train Your Dragon 2, along with games such as Bioshock, Left 4 Dead, and our own title, Super Shock Football being some examples.

Deadwood: The Forgotten Curse is a passion project for us. We have been working on it part time for a while, but have recently invested all of our savings and time into doing this fulltime. We currently have a core team of 6 and an extra 5 or so helping offsite. We are now moving full steam ahead to bring you the best game possible. We believe in Deadwood and we believe that our team has what it takes to deliver it.
