History

Early History

Industry veteran Nathan Fouts started MBG after working for years at cool places like Insomniac Games and Running With Scissors. Early titles include Shoot 1UP, Weapon of Choice, Game Type, and Explosionade for Xbox 360 on the XBLIG channel. These foundational action titles have since been ported to Steam.

Middle Ages

In 2011, MBG was contacted by Devolver Digital to design a 2D version of the popular FPS "Serious Sam". Some twist was needed to spice up the weapons and the result was amazing. Mommy's Best Games invented the concept of the GUNSTACKER! Since then, Serious Sam Double D XXL has been expanded, released on XBLA and re-released on Steam with 40 weapons and tons of Gunstacking.

The Present

Each game by Mommy's Best has some interesting feature, such as the Gunstacker, that makes our games actually worth playing. Since 2013, Mommy's Best Games current huge project has been Pig Eat Ball! It's our biggest project yet and launches in 2018 on multiple platforms.
