WoodRunner Games draws its name from the historical context of the "les coureurs des bois" in the XVII century, who were independent French Canadian entrepreneurs known as "WoodRunners." Rooted in their love for nature, they ventured into the wilderness to trade with the First Nation people. Our studio aims to represent Quebec's origins and embrace its cultural heritage, evident in our choice to set our debut game amidst the captivating fauna and flora of Quebec. Through our games, we strive to create immersive experiences that pay tribute to our roots and evoke a sense of pride in our heritage
WoodRunner Games was born in September 2020 and grew fast from 2 to more than 10 passionate people working at full time. It all started during the summer of 2020 while Max & Rob (the two CoFounders) decided to make their dream come true: Making their own video game. After finishing the game's concept, we realized fast enough that we needed a full team to get the quality that we wanted in a reasonable timeframe.

After six months working as a team on our first game named Quack, we already have a gameplay reel, a trailer and a Vertical Slice. We’re very excited about this project which is growing at a fast pace and we can’t wait for you to test your skills on Quack!
