About Us...

Crate is an independent PC developer with a current team of 12, led by game industry veterans with over 15 years of experience. In 2016 we released the PC ARPG Grim Dawn, which has sold over one million copies with a 91% Steam user rating and recently put out the Ashes of Malmouth expansion.
