About Brace Yourself Games

Brace Yourself Games was founded by veteran indie developer Ryan Clark in 2013. It’s only appropriate that our Vancouver-based independent game studio was named for a programmer pun that could only come from his shiny, bald head: {YOURSELF}

Our goal is to make standout games. We try new things, hold ourselves to a high standard, and make improvements when we make mistakes. What’s important is that you can always count on us to deliver in the end.
