About Bridgeside Interactive

Bridgeside Interactive is a small independent game studio founded in 2014 and located in Stockholm. Our goal is to build truly unique and inclusive games that explore new game mechanics and new ways of playing games. We who work at Bridgeside all have many different interests spanning everything from rock climbing and horseback riding to music, pen-and-paper RPGs and modern pedagogy in schools. This mixture of different interests and talents is the “primordial soup” from which our game ideas crawl onto land and evolve into unique and sprawling life forms. We hope that you would like to crawl and sprawl with us! Our first title will be a rhythm game for kids, parents, grandparents and music teachers.
