James Silva

James founded Ska Studios in 2007 when the game he’d been working on as a hobby project was awarded a publishing contract on Xbox Live Arcade. The game was called The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai, and it did well enough to keep this ship afloat through the next game, and the next, and the next.

Over the next 12 years, James would go on to create I MAED A GAM3 WITH Z0M1ES 1N IT!!!1, The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile, Charlie Murder, and Salt and Sanctuary.

James has been designer, artist, engineer, composer, animator, world builder, writer, lead singer, janitor, and of course, lead dishwasher for 15 years of Ska Studios.

Devoured Studios

Devoured Studios is the cool new entity formed by James and Shane to build Salt and Sacrifice as a completely joint effort.

As a tiny studio of two coders with different skillsets encompassing netcode, animation, game design, art, music, and a lot more, Devoured hopes to bring Ska Studios’ style of hand-drawn, style-heavy action games to a new level.

Team Renegade Radio

If you noticed splash screens for Team Renegade Radio in Charlie Murder and Salt and Sanctuary, wonder no more: Team Renegade Radio is Neko and Gato, two loving felines of unmatched wisdom.
