Starcap Games LLC is a Somerville based independent games studio. We believe that games as a medium have a great potential to affect human experience and create amazing social memories between people. We also really like parties.
Founded by Pat Roughan in 2015, Starcap Games started its gaming library with The EcoKids and the Paper Pests, created as a senior qualifying project at Worcester Polytechnic Institute and continued its development after WPI through the studio. The studio then developed and released Now Everyone Get The F%$# Out! and Zippy Drunks, cementing a focus on party-based tabletop games.
In order to better differentiate between Starcap's two focuses of tabletop games and educational games, the studio branched in 2016 and created Learning Star Games, the title under which Starcap's educational games library is developed.
