Who is Taco Sushi Games?
Taco Sushi Games is a small indie game studio headquartered in San Antonio, Texas. With that said, our team lives around the world! The co-founders, Jasmine Greene and Ray Flores, worked together at a previous studio on an ARPG and later on a mobile runner game called Once Upon a Runner. Unfortunately the studio shuttered, but they were able to take over the IP for Once Upon a Runner and released the mobile game on iOS and Android back in 2011.
Taco Sushi Games has released two games: The Painter's Apprentice (Steam) and Tortuga Racing (iOS and Android). They have also worked with several organizations including Legends of Learning, Cool Math Games, Girls Make Games, and Nano Web Group.

The name Taco Sushi Games comes from a combination of Jasmine and Ray's background. Jasmine is half-Japanese and Ray is Mexican-American.

Jasmine Greene grew up with video games with her first system being the NES. The interactive element of games has always interested her and she created a 'visual novel' on a Mac about a group of house hold utensil friends trying to escape the desk. Since then, she has been hooked on creating immersive and silly games.
