17-Bit is an indie video game developer and the creator of Skulls of the Shogun and Galak-Z: The Dimensional. The company was founded in 2009 by Jake Kazdal, formerly a Sega developer, who wants to make games with a 16-bit era aesthetic. It was known as Haunted Temple Studios until it changed its name to 17-Bit in May 2012 with a logo designed by Cory Schmitz. Gamasutra described the team as an example of successful indie cross-platform development for its work on Skulls of the Shogun. GungHo Online Entertainment became 17-Bit's house publisher in October 2014 as the developer worked on Galak-Z. Kazdal of 17-Bit was invited to speak on creating studio culture at the 2013 Game Developers Conference.
