Palworld has taken the world by storm and the creators of the monster catching game almost certainly can’t believe it.

Players count Palworld continues to reach obscene heights. The amount of money earned from Palworld probably far exceeded the developer’s expectations, with a budget that was practically nothing compared to the big AAA titles on the market.

But who did? Palworld? Who was the genius who came up with the idea of ​​providing rocket launchers for adorable creatures, capturing and enslaving humans, and even butchering picture-perfect friends?

The team is responsible for Palworld To be Pocketpair, Inc.

Compared to the Ubisofts, EAs and Bethesdas of the world, Pocketpair is a relative minnow. But Palworld is not the first work from the Japan-based video game developer and publisher.

What else can Pocketpair do?

Excessive dungeons

The company has developed and published Excessive dungeons in 2019—a strange blend of real-time card strategy and tower defense with roguelike elements. This ambitious title has received thousands of reviews on Steam, mostly positive and bringing joy to Pocketpair.


handmade arrives a year later in 2020 and this is the first real look at what’s to come. The open world title combines both action aspects and combines them with survival and crafting – sound familiar? Still in early access, handmade has been reviewed more than 15,000 times and its popularity has naturally paved the way Palworld.

Never Grave: Witches and curses

I don’t think we need to go into it Palworld too much in 2024, but another project that Pocketpair is attached to is Never Grave: Witches and curses. Again, it’s sure to raise a few eyebrows due to the nature of its design, style, and gameplay—I’m looking at you Hollow Knight—and it will be tough to beat Prince of Persia: The lost crown is the best Metroidvania title of the year.
