Press / Business contact:
Subset Games is primarily a two person team comprised of Justin Ma (artist) and Matthew Davis (programmer). They collaborate with other team members around the world to create unique independent games.
Matthew and Justin met in Shanghai while working in AAA development. They left their jobs in 2011 to pursue independent projects. In September 2012 they released their first game, "FTL: Faster Than Light", for PC. After finding success, Subset Games returned to FTL to create a free expansion along with an iPad port, both of which were released in April 2014.
In the years following FTL, Matthew and Justin have been working together on opposite sides of the globe. They’ve been hard at work on their recently announced title "Into the Breach."
