About Us

We are 15 Minutes of Game and we are dedicated to promoting the art and craft of videogames.

What Are We?

15 Minutes of Game (15MOG) is fast becoming an established studio in the Melbourne indie scene. We are a small team of developers that bring a diverse set of skills and ideas to the table. Our vision is grounded in the previous experience of our founders, in Social Work, Environmental Advocacy and Graphic Design. We have a unique vision for our work and strive to create entertaining games with meaningful messaging that have the power to inspire change. 

We’re dedicated to hiring young, diverse, and emerging local talent to help craft our games. Developing Trash has provided us with the opportunity to expand our team with immensely talented Victorian and Australian developers. Our team consists of a unique mix of creatives, with whom we share our vision for creating meaningful & beautiful games. We firmly believe in creating opportunities for those who might not have had access to the industry before, and are passionate about supporting our team to develop themselves both as individuals & as a team. 

It’s important to us that we create games that we love to play and connect with player communities who love to play the same kinds of games we do. Whilst we want our games to be grounded in our favourite genres, styles and experiences we remain ambitious in our goals and always strive to develop games with unique styles, features and opportunities for play. We believe that indie game developers play an important role in taking risks and creating unique games, pushing the medium to grow.

Who Are We?

We have a broad range of skillsets & promote the use of young and upcoming local talent in the creation of our games.
