SHG Studios is an independent casual game developer. We create casual games focused on social interaction. Players come for the games, and stay for the community. Our focus since day one has been on engaging social and community mechanics with our games. Players who joined us over 7 years ago, and still play, will attest to this. Our community development dynamics allows us to punch beyond our size and battle it out with the big players in the casual gaming world. We are very cognizant this is why players choose us over our competitors, and we build our games and communities accordingly.
