Regarding Recent Events

Funomena is a small business that makes games, but we do not exist in a vacuum. And so, we choose to speak out. 

We are affected by events in our families, our communities, and in the world. The recent anti-immigration actions taken by the government are harmful for several reasons. They send refugees back to the terrible and dangerous war zones that they have struggled to escape. They keep family members separated from each other across the world. They keep talented game creators with unique viewpoints stuck under oppressive regimes that censor their work. Funomena has friends who are directly affected by these new restrictions, and we fear for their safety and for their future. 

If you are also concerned, please speak out. Every voice matters.
