Hut 90 is an award-nominated independent game studio that focuses on developing action games that are fun for everyone.
Founded in December 2014, Hut 90 is a one-man game studio run by Lovepreet Singh. Before starting Hut 90, Lovepreet spent several years making games, mainly during game jams. During this time, Lovepreet improved his design and programming skills to a level that he could complete small games in a short period. After attending a few conferences and learning that making games could be a viable method of income, Lovepreet set up Hut 90.
After forming, Lovepreet, as Hut 90, decided to focus all of its resources on completing its first game called Retool. Retool was a 3D hacking puzzle game where players could hack into computers to rewire outputs of electronics. The game was released on May 19, 2016 and was accepted on the ID@Xbox program on the same day. The game was also a TIGA Awards 2016 finalist in the puzzle category.
After releasing this game, Hut 90 started working on the Xbox One port of Retool, and on its sophomore game called Akuto: Mad World. Akuto: Mad World started to gain lots of praise in a short period. Because of this, Hut 90 decided to focus on Akuto: Mad World and put the Xbox One port of Retool on temporarily hold. Akuto: Mad World was released on Steam Early Access on December 1, 2016.
Currently, Hut 90 is focusing on completing the final release of Akuto: Mad World.
