The Working Parts is an independent video game company located in Gothenburg, Sweden. Five of the main team members started working together on their spare time during their years at university, producing the still unfinished Residue for the SIGA (Swedish Independent Games Awards) competition. In late 2010 the group recruited long-time friend John Sundell to spearhead marketing, web development and various managerial duties, in the hopes of later on becoming a full-time studio. The studio's first finished game, They Breathe, was released on Xbox Live Indie Games December 6, 2011.[1]


They Breathe[edit]

The studio's first finished game was originally a project that two of the members produced as a school project. Under The Working Parts' label, the game was re-made from scratch.


A side-scrolling 2D platform game, Residue takes place in the Aral Sea. The game features three distinct characters, each with their own abilities, interacting independently in a linear story.


There have been hints in the studio's Twitter account that they are currently working on a first-person horror game, although no official details have yet been declared.
