The 11 person Teddy Gainz production team met online in 2021 through the IGDA Foundation’s Velocity program. Inspired by the majesty of chickens with swole arms, they banded together over 80 days and across 6 time zones to create Teddy Gainz and the Horror of Insect Island, the first game from the Teddy Gainz Productions Team. Our team had a blast learning how to make a game together and participating in our first game jam here on Itch.io. We hope you enjoy playing our game as much, if not more than we enjoyed getting to know each other and building it! Thank you!

Letter From the Update Team

Over the last seven months, we have had the pleasure of getting to know Teddy, Thicc, the inhabitants of The Sunnyside Ilses, and each other even better. We endeavored to bring to life the whole original story our team conceived for the game jam  with playability that would make it fun and accessible for more players to enjoy. We corrected so many typos, made so many new assets, fixed so many bugs (big and small) and laughed so much while making this game. We hope even more people can share in that joy and this story of friendship. 

Our team had so much fun we have already selected another jam to participate in please follow us on Itch.io, Twitter, and Youtube to see what we make next!
