MEET THE TEAM

Rabbit Hole Studios was founded in 2014 in the small province of PEI, Canada by local entrepreneurs Scott Humes and Courtney Gaudet. Armed with nothing but an idea and a powerful drive, they launched their first mobile game for android titled “Spirit of Adventure”. The local community showed their support en masse through a successful kickstarter, and the launch of three more games, winning back to back Fan Favorite Awards in 2017 and 2018. Rabbit Hole Studios has gone on to secure a publishing deal, and venture into the world of contracting. They continue to support their local industry as an active member of Videogames PEI. Moving into a new decade, Rabbit Hole Studios has built a rock solid team to expand on current and past projects. They will continue to build on Lilly’s vivid world with a new Spirit of Adventure comic series, as well as delving into the events before “The Lost Gardens”. Through hard work and dedication, the team at Rabbit Hole Studios believe that anything is possible, and they’re ready to prove it.
