about us

We are Fnife Games of the Orange Lemon House.

We're a small team of indie video game developers from the South Island of New Zealand, currently developing an Interactive Storytelling Art School-RPG titled 'Shelf Life'.

ShelfLife is a story-driven video game about a non-binary art student who begins to experience flashes of a bizarre parallel dimension after becoming injured during their daily commute.

Our group consists of three Fine Arts' graduates, one Music School graduate and one career Programmer. Our vision for ShelfLife is to create a quirky experience set within the absurd framework of Art School, exploring themes of mental health and LGBTQIA+ identity (plus fighting monsters because that's always a great time).

Follow our journey as we document research & development, and creative experiences during the process of creating ShelfLife.
