Viroid Games is a small indie game company based in Toronto, Canada. Kumsal Obuz founded Viroid in August 2020. He brings 15 years of web development and team management experience to Viroid.


Our mission is to build thoughtfully crafted PC games that offer detailed business simulations in novel environments. We want to create simulation games that offer a mix of challenges and attention to detail that we believe has been missing from the market. (If you enjoy games like Industry Giant and Capitalism, Viroid is the game company for you!)


As we grow, we want to develop RPGs with the same sort of detail and accuracy in inventory management and crafting. As part of our focus on a quality gaming experience, we’ll be creating games with engaging storytelling, and side quests that actually feel purposeful. 

We believe it’s important to give back to the community; the tools we evolve during the production of our games will be released to allow other creators to generate content for their own games.

Everything game-related is very important to us. To that end, Viroid Games is supporting Godot Toronto. Please check out our other affiliations, and look for Viroid-sponsored Meetups in the Greater Toronto Area, as well as future mentorship initiatives.
