Wolfire Games is an American independent video game development company founded by David Rosen. Wolfire Games develops video games for macOS, Windows, and Linux.[2]


David Rosen started Wolfire Games in 2003 to organize his open source video game contest entries.[3] After graduating from Swarthmore College in 2008, he was joined by his twin brother, Jeff, and two friends and Wolfire Games officially dove into the independent game industry. In 2010, Wolfire ran the first Humble Bundle, and this was spun into a separate company by Jeff Rosen and John Graham after the second bundle.


The company has won various awards for its games including 5th best Indie Game according to ModDB.[4]

Online presence

Shortly after David's twin brother and two friends joined Wolfire Games, the independent video game company also started a channel on YouTube. The channel was primarily used to show early footage of their next upcoming game, Overgrowth, and is still regularly used to show new features and updates from the game. As of 10 August 2018, the channel has over 90,000 subscribers.

Company name

About 24 years ago David and Jeff met an owner-less dog at their cabin in Sierra City. They decided to adopt him and named him 'Wolfenstein' or 'Wolfie' for short.

Later this was the inspiration for the company name 'Wolfire':

"When David was thinking of a name for his video game company, Wolfie sprang to mind. If you add an ‘r’ you get Wolfire. Wolves are cool, and so is fire, so why not Wolfire?"[5] – Jeff Rosen
