We're a mother and son duo making games, videos, and films in Las Vegas.
Our game development + entertainment studio is aptly named Changing Vegas. That's what we're doing.
We're proud to be a community-based business. Our goal is to create new games people love and to bring video games to the gaming floor. We are building our traveling troupe now.
