Handwritten Games



... is an award-winning game and narrative design studio in Perth, Western Australia.


Grand City Tales is a digital comic and interactive storyworld. Based on an early card game prototype, the setting takes place in the fictional US port of Grand City, and follows the lives and conflicts of the three major crime families following the social shifts directly following World War II.

In 2012, Grand City won an X|Media|Lab Development Award, which allowed the project to go into production. Issues #1-4 of the digital comic are now available for free, with issues #5-6 due early 2015.

The project uses an internally developed digital comic engine with responsive design, static and dynamic page transitions, and animation support.
