Vashta Entertainment is a small independent game studio located in Philadelphia, PA. We develop games for PC, Android, and iOS.

Vashta Entertainment began in 2013 with prototypes of the games that would eventually become Harvested and Trenches of War. Founders Bret Black and Shane Draper have been passionate gamers for their entire lives and often dreamed about building games of their own. We are most heavily influenced by RPGs and RTS games that feature massive story-focused worlds. As we grew older we grew bored with other people’s worlds and we decided to build worlds of our own.

Trenches of War, Vashta Entertainment’s first project, was originally released for web in August 2014.  It was later updated and released for Android and iOS in September 2015. River Rider was released for Android and iOS in March 2017.  Harvested, which has been in development since late 2013, was presented at MAGFest Indie Videogame Showcase 2016 and was nominated for “Best Technology” at Gameacon 2016 in Atlantic City, NJ.  Trenches of War was released on Steam for PC in July 2017.
