Three Pillars of Exploration


Explorers crave new experiences.

We seek out new stories, new systems, and new perspectives. We are not beholden to any genre, process, standard, tradition, or metric that came before, except where it works for us today. We believe new ideas are inherently worth investigating, and frontiers are meant to be expanded.


Explorers want to know what's real.

We are not satisfied with assumptions or surface-level understanding. Facts can be fun. Details can be exciting. Entertainment can be deep and enlightening without being "edu-tainment." Our attention to detail, depth of research, and embracing of the complex results in new and rich experiences.


Explorers encourage others to follow them.

From our earliest days, humans have been drawn to find out what is over the next hill, across the ocean, or out among the stars. There is a yearning inside of us to touch the unknown, and to understand it. Being an explorer is a calling that is open to anyone who reaches for it.
