  • 12 acres of farmland to explore, with unique, hand-crafted locations.
  • Multitude of puzzles to challenge your logic and intuition.
  • A rich, layered story to discover and experience first-hand.

About Zero Degrees Games

ZDG is a small independent game development studio based in Johannesburg, South Africa. It was formed in 2015 by former editor of NAG Magazine (a now-defunct South African gaming print magazine) Geoff Burrows, who is the lead developer, designer, writer, and artist on Among the Innocent. Part-time members of the team are Richard Braum (music, story), Bevan Wall (production, story), and Duncan Bell (additional art). Among the Innocent is our inaugural title, and we intend to grow with the Stricken series over the coming years.
