Higher Grounds is a game development studio based in Frisco, TX. We create tabletop games of all kinds, from Strategy Card Game to Board Games to Tabletop Role-Playing Games. Our focus is to create gritty, fun games that give a gaming challenge that leaves players feeling satisfied and accomplished.

Higher Grounds was founded in October of 2012 by Ray Machuga in Colorado Springs, Colorado. We survived the Mayan Apocalypse and, with a few tiny games produced and a second baby on the way, the company was moved to Texas, where it now resides.

Our goal is to bring new life and fresh outlooks to the gaming community, and to entertain and tell great stories. Great things come from small beginnings!
