Whitethorn Digital is a publisher of low-stress games. What does that mean?

“Low-Stress” Games are…

  • Approachable
    No prior knowledge, special skills, or finger-karate are necessary to enjoy our games.

  • Digestible
    Our games can be played with no time constraints, can be saved constantly, picked up and put down without penalty, and enjoyed briefly and instantly.

  • Stress-Free
    We don’t penalize players by making them repeat levels, frustrate them with sudden losses, or put them in high-stress situations. Pour a cup of tea, grab one of our games, and chill out.

We were founded in 2016 by Dr. Matthew White, who saw a need for publication, visibility, and advocacy for games for working adults who simply can’t play for six hours at a time. Our products have also found a home with younger children, or folks with busy schedules.

Headquartered in Erie, Pennsylvania, we take advantage of a great tax structure, a livable city, and the bitter cold of our long winters to fuel our passion for games.

If you're making a small to medium sized indie game that doesn't quite fit the mold, why don't you drop us a line?  We'd love to chat.
