ClutchPlay Games is an independent game developer, located in not-so-sunny yet idyllic Portland, Oregon.


The ClutchPlay Games team are remnants of the now defunct Stumptown Game Machine, formerly the Portland Studio of ngmoco:). After their studio was closed, they were four unemployed game developers with the desire to rebuild their studio and make great original games. They didn’t have venture capital, angel investors, or funding of any kind. What they did have was an idea for a game that became Little Chomp, lots of experience, some savings, and the grit to make it happen. Within their first year of operation, they had developed a proprietary cross-platform game engine and launched Little Chomp on iOS and Android to great critical success.

Prior to starting ClutchPlay Games, this team of industry veterans worked on a number of high profile mobile, console, and PC tiles including The Sims 2.0, The Sims Online, Mass Effect, Tiger Woods PGA Tour ’02-’05, Zoo Tycoon 2, Brothers In Arms, We Rule, NBA 2K10, 2K11, 2K10 Draft Combine, Quests & Sorcery: Skyfall, and Touch Pets Dogs, Cats, and Dogs 2.

In 2013, ClutchPlay became one of six companies selected by the Portland Development Commission for the PDX Startup Challenge,  a program designed to nurture promising startups in the City of Portland.
