Enter the castle


Haunted Castle Gaming is a small game studio based in Toronto, founded on the belief that life should be entertaining and educational. We wanted to make a company that helps people learn in a safe and fun space by thinking outside of the box, constantly trying new things, and by breaking the status quo. Our mantra is:

"Learn. Pivot. Keep Moving."

We are currently making our flagship game, Genesis: Battle of Champions. We are making a game that helps the players learn hard skills of resource management and strategical thinking, in a wonderfully designed fantasy based game. Through well crafted worlds, engaging game play, and giving the player agency we believe that this encourage players to explore the games they are playing. Through this exploration, we give the players the opportunity to learn about history, explore literary themes, and practice certain skills.

We aim to make games that go beyond being fun to play, but are also educational, engaging, and allows the player to be fully involved in them.


Our goal

There are many things we want to try to accomplish and be held accountable to as the company grows.

  1. We want to make the world more entertaining while providing more educational opportunities 
  2. We want to be creators who carry views of equality to everything we make
  3. We want to remove the hurdle for people to learn entry level skills
  4. We want to help our team achieve their dreams 
  5. We want to never settle
