Tequila Works is a video game developer located in Madrid, Spain. It was established in 2009 by some of the former employees of Blizzard Entertainment, MercurySteam, Pyro Studios, Sony Computer Entertainment and Weta Digital. On 18 January 2012, Tequila Works announced their first project in survivor horror's genre, named Deadlight.[1] Tequilla Works' next project was Rime, a puzzle video game originally intended to be a Sony exclusive game for the PlayStation 4. However, the team decided to acquire the IP rights from Sony during the middle of the game's development and bring the game to other video game platforms. Rime was released in May 2017.[2][3] The company also collaborated with GameTrust on a virtual reality project named The Invisible Hours, in which players will solve a murder mystery.[4]

In 2017, the company partnered with UK studio Cavalier Game Studios to publish their first game, The Sexy Brutale, while providing additional development support.[5] The company will also publish a game from Glowmade, a new start-up studio in Guildford.[6]
