Our offices  are in the heart of the Mile-Ex neighborhood (intersection Beaubien and Parc) right near Little Italy. Affordance designs and develops both entertainment and learning games. We’ve made learning games like Spellers for Alloprof and we’re currently partnering on an entertainment game, Steamboat Billy, which was funded on both Kickstarter and the CMF. It also just won the Ubisoft Indie Series award. We share offices with two other game studios, so we do game jams together and hold regular game nights. You don’t have to love games to be on our team but you have to love having fun to join this tribe.
