About 1CC Games
1CC Games is a small indie game studio from London, England that specialises in creating arcade style games, particularly shoot ’em ups.
Company founders Dan and James met at the now defunct Casino Arcade in London, where they were part of an enthusiast’s club for shoot ’em up games. With a passion for Japanese bullet hell titles, especially those from legendary developer CAVE, the duo decided to combine their talents and make their own games. With Dan handling graphics and music, James programming and both collaborating on game design, the pair quickly developed their own type of shoot ’em up that draws inspiration from Japanese classics but has a unique style of its own.
