History

Astrolabe Interactive, a Montreal-based game studio founded in 2018, is the mad project of Alexis Harvey and Manuel Bergeron, two game designers graduate of University of Montreal. Over time, the studio expanded with over fifteen talented team members, quickly causing the studio to overflow from Manuel’s living room into more permanent quarters. Sacrifice Your Friends, the studio’s debut title, is much like Astrolabe Interactive itself: friendly, inclusive… and a tad bit insane.
