Acid Nerve is a two man team from Manchester based in the United Kingdom. The studio was founded in December 2013. The team’s first full game was Titan Souls – released in April 2015 for the PS4, PS Vita, and PC.
Acid Nerve’s Mark Foster and David Fenn met at a local game developer meetup in Manchester where they made a Christmas themed game in one day for an advent challenge; the game was called ‘Pantsless Santa’ and was the first Acid Nerve game.
The game making duo then went on to do a game jam in Ludum Dare 26 with the theme ‘Minimalism’, in which they made a game called ‘Leaf Me Alone’. This won the overall game jam.
They decided to do another Ludum Dare for LD28, and teamed up with artist Andrew Gleeson to make the jam version of Titan Souls. This jam game got noticed by the publisher Devolver Digital and the rest is history as they say.
Here’s a list of the games that Acid Nerve have developed:
- Leaf Me Alone
- Titan Souls
