About KeokeN 

Established in 2013, KeokeN Interactive develops rich and believable worlds that will make you forget your surroundings and push the boundaries of your reality.

The unique elements of the gaming industry show that the possibilities seem to be truly endless and that the limitations are only bound by oneโ€™s own creativity. Our principles and uncommon market approach have created a unique indie developer.

In 2019 we released Deliver Us The Moon, a sci-fi adventure that takes players on a lonesome mission to the moon in order to save a desolate Earth. The game has received praise from critics and fans alike for its story and atmosphere, and itโ€™s the first Unreal Engine 4 title and the first indie title worldwide to support RTX raytracing.

At KeokeN Interactive we feel that we are in the experience creation industry rather than โ€˜justโ€™ the game development industry. We always aim for the highest quality and focus on stunning visuals, deeply immersive experiences, sensational audio, captivating stories and a keen eye for details.
