Team Terrible

Official Platinum Sponsor of Scottish Games Week 2023

Founded in 2020 by Greg Lee and Aaron Baumbach, Team Terrible’s first game was the result of a game jam competition in which the pair came up with the idea of a game based around babysitting a demonic toddler.


The response to the dark-humoured, spine-chilling The Baby In Yellow was so good that the duo decided to release it for mobile phones – where it ‘went viral’.
