Bloober Team is a Polish video game development studio located in Kraków, Poland.

The company was founded in 2008. Their first game – Double Bloob - was released in 2011 for Nintendo DSiWare. Their second game, Music Master Chopin was prepared in cooperation with the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage. A-men was the first Polish launch title on the PlayStation Vita.

In 2015 Bloober Team released [1] Layers of Fear - the biggest and most successful game from the studio to this date.[2][3][4]Layers of Fear success in its Early Access / Game Preview period helped to acquire a publisher in the form of Aspyr Media, which led to February 16, 2016 full launch of the game for PC[5]/Mac/Linux, Xbox One[6] and PlayStation 4[7]

History[edit]

The company was founded in 2008 by Peter Babieno and Peter Bielatowicz. The business began with contract work, however, after obtaining the necessary experience and gathering a team Bloober Team began working on its own projects.

After working for a few years as a company for hire, Bloober Team released A-Men for the début of PlayStation Vita,[8] which later was ported to PlayStation 3 and PC (Steam). A year later came the sequel named simply A-Men 2, that was released for PS Vita, PS 3, and in 2015 it has been brought to Steam.[9]

One of the turning points in Bloober Team's history was the development of Basement Crawl, which débuted alongside the PlayStation 4. The game received unsatisfactory reviews from the critics and the community,[10] which was a clear sign that amends had to be made. Loving the initial idea behind Basement Crawl the studio decided to redesign the game leaving only the core idea intact. New graphics, game mechanics, story and modes of play have been introduced. This led to the February 2015 release of BRAWL. The game received far better reviews and was given away for free by the company to those who bought Basement Crawl.[11]

In 2015 Bloober Team grew in size after the acquisition of a few game industry veterans. This sped up the production of Layers of Fear and Layers of Fear: Inheritance DLC.[12]

Bloober Team now continues to work on new psychological horror games.[13]
