About the Studio

Based in the colorful, creatively vibrant city of Montreal, Metric Empire is a brand new independent game development studio with a mission to create high-quality, meticulously distilled game experiences that are innovative, accessible, highly-replayable and, above all else, infinitely fun.

Our studio is currently located near the Quartier des Spectacles inside GamePlay Space, a unique co-working space dedicated to independent game developpers like us.

Our Games

We're currently working super hard on the creation of our very first game and we hope to unveil the very first, exclusive details by the beginning of spring 2019.

If you want to be among the privileged few to get the full details about our new game, you just have to become a 'Friend of the Empire' by signing up for our newsletter!

That said, if you're not ready for that kind of commitment, that's okay too, just check back often and/or follow us on your favorite social media.

Our Team

With well over 40 years of combined development experience on some of the most critically acclaimed, generation-defining AAA games like Prince of Persia, Far Cry and Assassin’s Creed, our little empire means pretty serious business.
