About Axolot Games
Axolot Games is an independent game company founded in 2012 by Kacper Antonius and Pontus Holmbom. The company’s first PC game ‘Scrap Mechanic’ evolved directly from Minecraft: 2011 saw the team build a playable Xbox 360 test build for Mojang, a collaboration which never came to fruition.
The Axolot team took their ideas for a more technically ambitious building survival game, offering a brand new playing experience within the genre. Starting off life as a two-man team, Scrap Mechanic’s success has seen the studio expand to a team of 10.
