Smith and Winston Key Art

When a strange signal is detected in deep space the Federation orders Smith and Winston to go and investigate. What they find, after a brief nap, is a shattered ring world, aliens and an evil overlord called the VOID.

After crashing in to the ring world, due to a slight navigation error involving hitting an asteroid, you guide Smith and Winston through this strange new world.

Shippy, your ship, is there to help or maybe she’s there to kill you? Who knows? Either way, if you’re going to get home for another nap you’ll need to collect power cubes to repair Shippy!

Smith and Winston is a twin stick shooter for Windows, macOS, Linux, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. Featuring hand built levels in a custom engine optimized for fun and destruction.

No, no, no. Not the big bulky ones that Notch used to make, but small sleek sexy ones. I say “ones” but there’s flipping thousands of ‘em. Just luverly.


Get lost, find things… look a key! With hand crafted levels we’ve taken the time to make exploring rewarding and quite the delight.

Challenging twin stick combat

Ok, it’s not that challenging buts it’s fun. We have Boss fights too, so test your mettle against the BUNKER-BOSS, CHOPPER-BOSS and the very VOID itself!


It looks like pixels but it’s all 3D, go on spin the camera, check behind that tree, marvellous.

Free Flowing Movement

Jump, dash, boost, plummet to your death.

Local Co-op including buddy mode

Grab an extra controller and a friend, pet or just draw a face on a plant pot, all this is available to play split screen, awesome. With biddy mode enabled player two cannot die, perfect for playing with youngsters.


New heads to find and collect, always wanted a head shaped like a toaster? Well here’s your chance.

Press Quotes

I’ve loved what it has to offer so far and I’m genuinely excited to follow it along in development.

Playing this was like being a child again, as huge amounts of enjoyment oozed out of my every pour.
