Pedigree

Enterprise Software Engineering

Heathen's founder has 15+ years working for major Microsoft Gold Partners and major technology groups providing design, development and support of enterprise systems such as CRM (Customer Relationship Management) and ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems as well as bespoke and proprietary systems and integration.
With successful projects delivered to major corporations internationally as well as government agencies the Heathen team is well versed in the application, system and project lifecycle and its nuances across multiple industries and scales of operation.

Unity

From Unity version 3 to the first wave of assets on the Unity Asset Store. We have been users and supporters of Unity 3D and its community for around a decade 🤪 . While Unity wasn't our first engine and isn't the only game engine in our toolbox, it is our primary area of focus as a company and our weapon of choice for game and rich multimedia applications.
Heathen is a strong believer that game technology and in particular Unity 3D can deliver significant value not just to the game industry but beyond. We have participated in a few non-game related uses of the engine and are keen to see and contribute to more.
More than just avid users and publishers of fine assets Heathen is also here to support our fellow game developers and asset developers. With multiple open source frameworks and articles meant to help you do more with Unity … and Heathen as well 😉

Steam

We develop Heathen's Steamworks; the best way to integrate Steam with your Unity project.
Our community of a 1000+ developers are largely Steam developers and our technology powers dozens of great games on Steam. Heathen invests heavily in the Steam API and in particular the technologies and communities built up around it. From tools, to consulting and development Heathen can help you Do More!
