Never Games is an American independent game studio founded by Ben Ryding.


Never Games Founding

After developing many unreleased games in his free time while working in corporate software engineering, Ben resolved to get serious about game development with his automation game, Final Factory, which began development in August of 2018. Never Games was founded in 2019 in order to prepare for its eventual release. After more than 4 years of mostly solo development, Ben quit his job as tech lead of SketchUp for Web to pursue game development full time. Starting in 2023, a small team was formed to speed up development. Ches Denison joined in early 2023 as a game designer and playtester. Andrew Pace, formerly of Blizzard, joined in March of 2023 as COO.
