Laserbrain Studios is an independent video game developer located in Denmark. We’re currently developing our first commercial title, Hostile Takeover, an isometric assassination/stealth game inspired by classics like Fallout, X-COM and Syndicate. When completed, the game will be available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

You can follow the game’s development on our blog, where we will occasionally also write about other things.

Oh, and when I say ‘we’ and ‘our’, it’s really just ‘me’ and ‘my’. Laserbrain Studios currently consists of just me, Christian Knudsen, both designer and programmer, doing most of my game making from a couple of laptops in my bedroom. ‘We’ just sounds a bit more professional and corporate-like, don’t ya think?
