About us


The Windy City Game Lab is a hobby game studio based in Chicago. It was founded to house the game ideas and projects of Sam "RedSam" Bredeson. The WCGL develops web-based game tools and has several board & card games in development.

Sam's gaming history is rooted in Magic the Gathering, X-Wing, and Guild Ball. His major game design goal is to merge the tactics and positioning skill of a miniatures game with the small footprint and fast pace of a trading card game.
