Giant Squid is a small team of award-winning game developers in West Los Angeles.


We believe that video games can be more than a pastime - they can be an artistic medium that delivers beautiful, meaningful, and timeless experiences to a wide range of people. Our goal is to create games that fulfill that potential. We strive to create innovative and deeply moving experiences that will inspire players, challenge convention, and push the boundaries of interactive entertainment to new exciting areas.

We are currently working on The Pathless, a mythic adventure game about an archer and an eagle in a vast forest.
Our first project was ABZÛ, an epic descent into the depths of the sea.

    CREATIVE DIRECTOR

    Our Creative Director and Co-Founder, Matt Nava, is the driving creative force behind Giant Squid and its games. Previously the Art Director at thatgamecompany, his artistic vision helped craft the award winning games Flower and Journey for the PS3.

    Journey, with over 33 Game of the Year and multiple Best Art Direction Awards, is a testament to Matt's ability to communicate deeply moving narrative through visual and interactive design. Matt wrote and designed the critically acclaimed book, The Art of Journey, in which he provides insight into the development process and showcases his artwork for the game.

    With Giant Squid, Matt hopes to create an artistic atmosphere where he can collaborate with talented developers to make games that build on and expand his vision of deeply immersive and meaningful experiences.
