We Are A Worker-Owned Game Company! What Does That Mean?
Updated: Apr 9
We are Lost Attic, a completely worker-owned independent game studio. We are not the first, and most certainly will not be the last, but nonetheless, we are extremely excited about the dynamic of our team!
A worker-owned (or co-op) company is one that is owned in completely equal shares between the team. Everyone has equal say, equal pay, and equal ownership of what the company does. There are many benefits of this structure, but one of the most important being there are no bosses!
Everything the team decides is voted on democratically, so the top-down approach traditional businesses abide by is completely eliminated. There's never a moment where a decision is made for the betterment of an individual versus the whole team.

Thank you and have a wonderful rest of your day!
