Fellow Traveller is an indie games label exploring the possibility space of what games can be. Passionate about the vast and untapped potential of games as a medium, its mission is to seek out pioneering game developers working on unusual games with narrative at their core, help these developers bring their creations to the world and to connect them with players looking for something different.

Formerly known as Surprise Attack Games, the label was founded in 2011 and rebranded as Fellow Traveller in 2018. You may know them for the hacking game using real unix commands (Hacknet), the surveillance thriller series that puts you in the shoes of Big Brother (Orwell), the sad game about an elderly goat farmer (The Stillness of the Wind) or the dystopian steampunk mini-golf adventure game (Vertiginous Golf).


Fellow Traveller was founded by Chris Wright and originally launched in 2013 under the name of Surprise Attack Games. Inspired by the independent record labels Chris had grown up listening to, and the developers who were leaving the AAA world behind to create small, nimble independent studios, the company was established to be a new kind of indie games label.

Earning a reputation for games with weird and unusual concepts, largely through the success of games such as Hacknet, Screencheat and Orwell, the label has increasingly been attracted to signing games that use narrative in compelling and unusual ways.

In 2018 the decision was made to rebrand the label to Fellow Traveller Games to better reflect our motivation of working in very close partnership with developers and our mission to explore the uncharted space of what narrative games can be.
