Rarebyte is a young and ambitious game development company from Austria,
mainly focused on creating games that are highly entertaining, well-designed
and outstanding due to their smart gameplay.
The people behind the company originally met as a team of enthusiastic game programmers and artists back in 1999, officially forming the company in 2006, after having gained a lot of experience from both contract work and realization of their own ideas.
The first game, Waterstorm, a submarine multiplayer shooter, was released in early 2008. Additionally, Rarebyte was contracted to lead the Macintosh port of the backcountry snowboarding game Drop Point: Alaska, which was released in February 2008.
Furthermore, the company has also been developing games for coin-operated touchscreen entertainment machines as well as technology for recent video game consoles.
Besides game projects, Rarebyte also develops application software on demand.
