Our Mission is to make new games and create new opportunities. We are based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, but collaborate with talented individuals from all over the place.

Reborn in 2014, Finji was originally founded by Adam and Rebekah Saltsman in 2006. We are passionate game makers who sometimes work odd hours, but we practice inclusive team policies that support good quality of life (no crunch), and provide significant revenue shares for all team members.

Harris Foster
Community Manager

With his coming-of-age taking place during the boom of easily accessible online gaming, Harris Foster appreciated the value of a strong online community. Since then, Harris has helped craft communities for major online projects, write pieces for PlayStation and G4TV, make appearances on video content for IGN and Giant Bomb, and more. With Finji, Harris set out to create a community that resembled what he always wanted to see in his favorite online spaces.

Heather Winter
Quality Assurance

From a young age Heather was always glued to the screen; entranced into the narrative and design of a digital world that playing video games had to offer. In addition to her passion for games, Heather is deeply passionate about animal rights, spending her spare time raising awareness for homeless animals, as well as fostering. She is currently focused on building quality games with Finji, and streaming weekly at Twitch.tv.

Zachary Sandel
Quality Assurance

A Grand Rapids, Michigan local, Zach joined the Finji team to help ship Overland. They are currently applying their pest control expertise on Finji’s future endeavors. Zach attempts to play the bass guitar, loves pixel art restrictions, and is probably the absolute biggest Earthbound-liker.
