Founded in 2012 by a group of game-industry veterans from Harmonix, Turbine, and Insomniac, Proletariat is an award-winning game developer with the mission to deliver groundbreaking multiplayer titles.
The studio’s first major title, World Zombination, debuted in early 2015 as a coveted “Editor’s Choice” on the iOS App Store. Attracting millions of players worldwide, it went on to be named to Apple’s “Best of 2015” list and developed a reputation for bringing AAA quality and depth to the mobile MMO landscape.
After developing a passion for live streaming as part of their transparent development process—including live development streams and hundreds of lets plays—they created two distinct, but symbiotic new products: Streamline, a fast-paced arena game with full live stream integration, and Streamote, a backend and website that enables viewers to interact with their favorite broadcasters and control what’s on screen. Streamline was the first game to release as part of Twitch Prime. Proletariat also created an RPG called StreamLegends, a Twitch extension that lets channel communities quest and build guilds together.
