Action Forms was a Ukrainian game development company, based in Kiev, Ukraine.


The company Action Forms was founded in 1995. In 1997, their debut game Chasm: The Rift was released. Subsequently the company has earned recognition as developer of Carnivores series, in which Action Forms has developed 3 titles. The company used their own game engine AtmosFear in every released game since Carnivores. In 2005 Vivisector: Beast Within and «Остров Сокровищ» (Ostrov Sokrovisch)[1] based on the Soviet animated film Treasure Island, which itself was based on the novel of the same name by Robert Louis Stevenson, were released. In 2009 Cryostasis: Sleep of Reason, which uses modified game engine AtmosFear 2.0, (though it was actually the fourth major generation of the engine) was released. Currently Action Forms is dormant.[2][3] Main members of the company created the game development studio Tatem Games, focused on games for iOS platform and revived the Carnivores franchise.[4]
