About Us


Big Rook Games started in 2011 developing Xbox Live Indie Games. It released 2 top-rated top-down shooters in the Undead Empire series, the very first in the genre to include online multiplayer. BRG also developed an app that tracked the history of a player’s gamerscore while ranking the player and their friends on Xbox 360. This was created before it was standard functionality in Xbox One. BRG then pivoted to focus on teaching game development while working on select game projects in the background. Big Rook Games is now focused solely on game development with Fort Hero.
