Who We Are

Strange Scaffold is the development label of Xalavier Nelson Jr., who you might know from his work as a leading developer on Stranger Things VR, An Airport for Aliens Currently Run by Dogs, Hypnospace Outlaw, SkateBIRD, Can Androids Pray, or dozens of other critically-acclaimed projects. 

Strange Scaffold is a multi-development, multi-collaborator studio. Most recently, Strange Scaffold released Space Warlord Organ Trading Simulator, our critically-acclaimed sci-fi body-horror market tycoon, and Sunshine Shuffle, a surprise multiplatform success following in the footsteps of Poker Night at the Inventory. Neo-noir never looked so good in our most recent release,  El Paso, Elsewhere, and you don’t have to take our word for it – check out our accolades here.

OUT NOW: El Paso, Elsewhere

STAKES. GUNS. SLOW-MO. Fight werewolves and vampires in a reality-shifting motel. Dive through barricades to escape the grasp of evil puppets. Destroy the villain you loved. A new, third-person love letter to classic shooters. Neo-noir never looked so good.
