Description

We are the makers of Residue and They Breathe. We like hidden secrets and interactive stories.

History

The Working Parts was formed by five childhood friends and this one guy we found on a train once. We are united by our passion for making games and our desire to take the medium towards greater maturity in whatever way we can, as well as our fascination for The Protomen (as evident in our choice of studio name). We do our best to get along!
