History

Define Human Studios was founded in 2015 with the goal of creating a new fast-paced science fiction shooter for the battle royale genre.  After a successful Kickstarter campaign, co-founders Rob Logan and Jake Tolton set forth to become both developer and publisher of their interpretation of a new battle royale.  During the phases of development, talented designers and developers have joined the ranks with past experience from working at companies such as Epic Games, Bioware, and Ubisoft.  Islands of Nyne is a game cultivated from modest beginnings that has transformed into a serious contender in the battle royale market.
