We are a board game startup company based in Charlotte, North Carolina. Founded in Summer 2020, the threat of the global pandemic had us stuck inside where our creativity began to take physical shape! Making use of our time, we began the creation of our first game, Infernal Escape. As a company, we exist to develop unique games that act as a central factor in bringing family and friends together alike. Longtime friends and founders of Underscore Games, Philip, Daniel, and Tim have taken initiative to expand our team to the list that it is below! Take a minute to meet our current staff down below!
