Press / Business Contact:
Tender Claws is an award-winning game company located in Los Angeles, California that creates novel media experiences at the intersection of art, games, and technology. Our team includes directors, writers, designers, and coders that collaborate to blur the boundaries of design, publishing, cinema, installation and virtual reality. We are committed to a reciprocal creative process: one that requires deep attention to content and careful consideration of the affordances of a technology.
Founded by Danny Cannizzaro and Samantha Gorman in 2014, Tender Claws projects deftly explore our relationship to both the real and virtual worlds. Recent projects include hybrid novel “PRY,” named by Apple as one of the Best Apps of 2015; narrative VR game “Virtual Virtual Reality,” named the Best VR Experience at the Google Play Awards in 2017; and the upcoming mobile AR game “Tendar,” arriving in Summer 2018.
