We are a three-person studio, creating some cool games in Belgium!
The origins of Team Panoptes as a studio go back to August 2016, at Gamescom, where 5 friends from the Belgian indie scene came together to work on a project during the InnoGames Jam. The game the team made was an asymmetrical game between a VR and a PC player, where the two players operate on a vastly different scale. Panoptic (then called Panoptes) was born, and won several prizes in the jam, and got the team the opportunity to show the game as part of the Indie Arena Booth during Gamescom. Given the enthusiastic reception the prototype got, the team continued to work and update the game for a little over a year as a hobby. After being invited back to Gamescom 2017 and winning a couple more prizes, it was time to take the project to the next level.Founding
In 2017, 4 of the 5 members of the jam team decided to found a company to continue working on Panoptic. Team Panoptes thus went from a group of friend to a proper game development studio. From that point on, the team focused on securing the means to finance the rest of the project, and managed to do so through public funding and through a deal with a small publisher.After that
Team Panoptes has since continued to work on Panoptic. While one member had to leave the studio for personal reasons, and the collaboration with the publisher had to be interrupted, the three remaining members have continued developping the game, which is now available in Early Access on Steam.
