RUST LTD. is a digital design studio based in Los Angeles.
HistoryOnce Upon a Time, RUST Happened.
Founded in Buffalo, NY and currently based in Los Angeles, CA, RUST LTD is an award-winning design studio. RUST's core team members are experts in game design, prototyping, writing, development, and audio production. We have attended and lectured at the best game design programs in the country, and we have experience designing analog board and card games, alternate reality games, video games, interactive visualizations, and tech demos in the PC and mobile spaces.
In addition to the core team, RUST LTD also maintains a network of consultants and affiliates comprised of technical researchers and other subject matter experts. This network allows RUST to be flexible in approaching every project, drawing on just the right expertise as needed. As a result, we are able to combine the sensibilities of an independent art collective with the skills and capacities of a “triple-A” game design studio.
RUST LTD has produced work and consulted for a wide range of clients, including Unity Technologies, Nvidia, Allegorithmic, and the University of Southern California. We have produced graphics middleware that is now used by hundreds of developers in the Unity engine community, and have been frequently called upon for projects investigating new technologies in the games, simulation, visualization, and virtual reality spaces. In addition, each of its core members maintains an independent art practice, creating interactive installations, mobile apps, experimental literature, and artistic interventions.
