Remote, teammates in California and Illinois
February 22nd, 2021
At Good Trouble, our mission is to create new opportunities, support impactful causes, and obliterate industry gatekeeping by crafting original, groundbreaking, and memorable gaming experiences. We're a remote-first games studio structured as a co-op, founded on the premise that good fun can build real change.
Good Trouble was unofficially formed in February 2021 by Arman Nobari and Anthony Gibson. We reached the top of r/indiegames while teasing our first project, Harlow, and quickly realized our quirky approach resonated with players.
After securing a publishing deal for Harlow, we continued to self-fund the studio throughout 2021.
In January 2022, Joseph Burke joined the team at Good Trouble. Making music as OBFUSC, Joe's music was featured on the Monument Valley (2014) soundtrack, and he produced the entire soundtrack for BAFTA-nominated game NeoCab (2019), and also co-produced the Harlow OST.

Good Trouble's first game is an award winningatmospheric, lighthearted 2.5D physics platformer called Harlow.
Featuring over an hour of original music, Harlow took players on a journey across a desolate planet as the namesake robot Harlow, while planning a surprise party for the frozen humans aboard the R1-Humanity.
Harlow won GOLD at the 2022 NYX Game Awards.
Harlow is out now on Nintendo Switch, PC, and Mac.
Additionally, Good Trouble has two other unannounced titles in active development.
GOLD Winner, NYX Game Awards, 2022 (Harlow)
