E for Everyone


Story Giant is a small indie game studio that stands for great emotional storytelling in games. We pride ourselves in creating characters you want to spend time with and worlds you want to live in.

Story Giant is formed by people who worked on the successful time management series: Delicious, Heart’s Medicine and Criminal Minds.


Inclusivity and particularly the celebration of women are an integral part of our mission at Gamehouse Original Stories ever since it was founded in 1998. Some of our most recent female led titles include: Delicious World, Amber's Airlines , Fabulous Angela, Sally's Salon & Heart's Medicine.

Therefore a game with a young and inspirational female engineer in the lead role, made Text Express a very logical fit for a publishing collaboration.

We understand the powerful role of female characters and genuinely care how they are portrayed in gaming.

We are proud to be partnering with Story Giant Games on what can only be described as “not your average word game”.

Text Express is not only a beautifully designed game, but one with strong values - values we at Gamehouse endeavor to uphold and champion with our ever growing audience of millions of players!

Text Express History

Our own adventure started three years ago when we decided to create our most ambitious game yet.
A word adventure that takes the player along for a journey, an original story filled with exploration
and discovery. Many iterations have brought us to the amazing game Text Express is today.

And every day we wake up excited to work on Text Express, expand its world, invent new ways to play and fill our players' hearts with joy.
