We’re an independent game studio headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, an international hub for innovation and expertise in game development.

Established in 2012 by Raphael van Lierop, Hinterland is a multi-national, multi-ethnic team united around a single goal – to create thought-provoking, story-rich entertainment experiences. Our original fictional settings are conceived from the ground up to exist across multiple mediums and game platforms.
