Games are the perfect way to tell a story.


Games naturally create spaces for human connection and easily engage players in the most complex narratives. They can be challenging, poignant, meaningful, fun and exhilarating all at once.


Welcome to Montanarini.Games an independent game design team. Our work is driven by story and people. We believe games are the best way to tell stories and can very quickly engage players in intellectually and emotionally challenging narratives.

We work closely with Scientists and Researchers to help turn the story within their science into games playable by different audiences.

We deliver Game Design Workshops to give people the tools to make games, connecting their work to others. 

And, to ensure we are always learning, we practice what we preach by making our own games. You can check these out here.

 The work we do is driven by the chance to bridge people together and play!

Thank you for visiting our website and please do get in touch!
