About Us

Brainstem Games LLC is a member owned Limited Liability Company located in a small community in the greater Tampa Bay area called Oldsmar, Florida. 

Brainstem Games LLC evolved from the core development team of the original company, Brainstem Games, Inc. Brainstem Games, Inc. initial published work was the Rise of Kobol mod for Battlefield 2 and was in the beginning stages of creating a full fledged video game using a different game engine when tragedy struck.  One of the original owners and the major financial investor was killed in a tragic car accident. 

This horrible event shattered the fledgling company and the other owner, Chris Breckenridge was left to pick up the pieces and start over.  Chris added some fresh blood to the development team and together they formed Brainstem Games LLC.
