Kindly Beast (formerly known as theMeatly Games), is a production game company behind the creation of Bendy, founded by theMeatly and Mike Mood. It was first established since 2015 as theMeatly Games (named after the puppet mascot), before it was renamed to Kindly Beast on September 15, 2018, since theMeatly wanted to show that he wasn't the only one that made Bendy and the Ink Machine and other Bendy games.
Founded in Ottawa, Ontario of Canada, Kindly Beast itself produces some known non-Bendy games such as Showdown Bandit, the company also hosts a team called "Joey Drew Studios Inc." for the Bendy brand series.
On June 1, 2020, Kindly Beast's website, along with its social media platforms, were shut down. However, the host website is still currently available.
Kindly Beast Inc. is known for their unique and atmospheric gaming experiences. Through the use of inventive original characters and innovative storytelling, they craft games for gamers both old and new. Pairing dark themes with humorous twists, every game is an adventure.
