SpinPunch makes infrastructure for high performance browser games to rival PC and consoles. Our first titles, Mars Frontier, Thunder Run, and War Star Empire are massively multi-player real time strategy game built in HTML5.
Our backgrounds range from creating Emmy-winning computer graphics and working with Disney, IMAX and NASA, to building world class software in Microsoft Office.
In our spare time, we contribute to the open source community (Linux kernel, ffmpeg video compression), develop visual effects software (used in BattleStar Galactica and Firefly) and avidly play games. We’re founded by alumni from Stanford, Cornell and Waterloo.
