About Red Blue Games
Red Blue Games is an indie studio based out of Durham, NC. Founded in 2013 by twins, Edward and Lucas Rowe, they were later joined by their friend, Kevin Mabie. Growing up as twin brothers, co-founders Edward and Lucas began making games to share with one another. From Mario levels drawn on spools of printer paper to Lego-based RPGs, their many experiments instilled a love of game making from an early age. Similarly, Kevin developed his passion for game making when he was young; drawing alternative Zelda screens when bored in school and replaying the tune of his favourite game tracks on his toy piano at home. Together, they’ve now turned their passion for game creation into Red Blue Games, where they make game experiences to share with the world.
