Flamebait Games is a small award-winning game studio focused on delivering strange and charming games to the masses.


The tale of Flamebait Games began in early 2015 at the university of Skövde. Together, a team of students started developing games with the purpose of exploring experimental concepts and creating fun experiences. After a few failed projects, Flamebait started developing Passpartout: The Starving Artist, a game where the player paints and sells their own art. As their first commercial release, Passpartout was launched in June 2017 and has since become a major success. In the following months, Passpartout was ported to mobile and tablet devices and released on Android and iOS in November the same year. Since then, Flamebait released two more games, Verlet Swing and Forge and Fight! Currently, Flamebait is working on Passpartout 2:The Lost Artist, a sequel to the first game which will let you break free from the shackles of your studio and explore the beautiful seaside town.
