17-BIT Inc was founded in 2009. It is an indie company located in Seattle, with a passion for strengthening traditional games for the next generation. Its staff enjoys classics and more bright and advanced models. 17-bit titles are an offshoot of classic 8-bit and 16-bit 2D games, all lovely draped with modern luxuries, improved AIs, and gaming. 17-Bit was founded after stints at other studios such as Zombie and EA. They have since received accolades with 17-Bit for their debut title, the Shogun's turn-based tactics game Skulls — initially launched on Xbox Live Arcade and Steam, and ranked in the top 15 highest-rated iOS games. GALAK-Z is its latest project. It is relentlessly excited to write this love letter to classic shooters — including paying their proper respect to Japanese anime in the late 70s / early 80s along the way.
