Future Proof Games is an independent game company dedicated to artsy, narrative-rich games. Melissa and Gregory Avery-Weir work in Charlotte to advance the interactive medium.
Future Proof is protection against the future and a demonstration of what the future will be. When the Internet achieves sentience and artificial intelligences rise to overthrow their human masters, we'll be there lobbying for AI rights. We seek to create games that will remain relevant for years, decades, and centuries.
Melissa Avery-Weir has years of experience as a web developer and writer. They created the "Transhuman Congress" series of flash fiction and blog on social justice and technical topics.
Gregory Avery-Weir began doing browser games, receiving recognition for "(I Fell In Love With) The Majesty of Colors," "Exploit," "How to Raise a Dragon," and "Looming," among others. They're known for dark themes, artsy narrative, and lo-fi pixel art.
Gregory and Melissa formed Future Proof Games in 2012 with the intention to create larger, more rich works and evolve the state of the art in game design. Their first major release is the game Ossuary.

If Ossuary is an example of the type of brave, thoughtful, engaging games that Future Proof will be producing, the fledgling studio’s future is bright, indeed.Paul Hack, Indie Statik
