We are Fat Bird Studios!

Fat Bird Studios comprises of game developers using our personal experiences and unique skills to bring approachable and accessible gaming to our communities.

Kayla Miskiv, Studio Manager   Querent was born because one day, Kayla asked Mish a question, “do you know anything about tarot cards?” A stickler for research, Kayla worked with Mish to create the stepping stones for Querent and is now responsible for managing the team and project’s progress. When she’s not playing and designing games, she loves to read and write.

Mish Shea, Design Lead   Mish leads on all content creation for Querent. From spread creation to card meanings and examples, she uses her deep knowledge of tarot to make sure  The Cartomancer’s Tome  is accurately represented. Mish has a background in narrative and level design and enjoys playing DnD and exploring Burlington. Fun fact: she has an aggressive amount of washi tape and is on a mission to make everything “more pretty”!
