About Bonte Avond

We're a Dutch game studio made up of 2 musicians. We really like going with first ideas and putting lots of homemade indie music in our games. Whether it's making music together, doing lots of voice-acting or coming up with weird and funny game ideas. We always try to be conscious of diversity in our games and hope that we can play a (small) part in improving acceptance and happiness in the world. We joke a lot in our games, but never at anyone's expense (except maybe our own).
