About the company:

Thunderful is a relatively new company, but with old roots.  It was formed by a number of small indie companies coming together to make something greater than they could have done independently. Over the last few years, Thunderful has grown into four different offices with roughly 120 people making games in team sizes between 15-35 people. 

The teams within have developed the award-winning SteamWorld series, known for its frequent genre-hopping and inclusive design, as well as more recent AA-games like The GunkLost in Random, and other, un-announced but equally charming titles.
