CM Games is an independent game developer of mobile and virtual reality titles, founded in Estonia in 2010.

Back in the day, we created a new genre of mobile games, diversified our portfolio by making premium live games for virtual reality with a focus on gameplay and atmosphere, and delved into the action, racing, and puzzle genres.

Our goal is to build a platform for talented people who love games and create exciting yet accessible games designed for a midcore and hardcore audience.

Our first VR success
Into The Radius is a single-player survival shooter set in a post-apocalyptic world. It got into the Steam Platinum VR Category in 2021 with 91% very positive reviews and hit the first page of top-grossing projects on Steam. Into the Radius will be available on Meta Quest 2 in September 2022!
