Sledgehammer Games and Extra-Life 2012!


What a great year for Extra-Life and Sledgehammer Games!  For the second year in a row, the studio participated in this incredible industry event and we're proud to have exceeded our $10,000 goal for Children’s Hospital & Research Center Oakland, a Children’s Miracle Network hospital. From putting our word out on our Twitter and Facebook, to going grass roots and calling family members to make an hourly pledge to our gaming marathon, everyone at the studio made an excellent effort. A big hats off to the team who played 24-hours straight to meet our goals. Our studio was founded on a singular goal, “Achieve Excellence” and that definitely extends outwards to lend a helpful hand to people that need it. Special thanks to everyone that participated, our community for pitching in on our social channels, and the organizers at Extra-Life for the tremendous job that they do.

Sledgehammer Games Softball Season Wrap-Up


The Sledgehammer Games Softball Team.

Our lunchtime softball season has officially ended, and we’re excited to say that even though we didn’t take the championship we had a great time out there this year. With a record of 11 wins and only 3 losses, momentum wasn’t an issue for Team Sledgehammer, but occasional loose bats flying at the dugout were. Don’t worry – we won’t mention you by name, Larry! When the playoffs came along, we faced Crystal Dynamics, who took some time off from developing Tomb Raider to win by two runs in the semi-final. We didn’t walk away empty-handed though, we’re able to claim the most runs of the season, and the fewest runs allowed. Not too shabby. With the winter league coming up, we’re excited to get back into the game and we’re going to give it our all. 


Check out some of the images from our summer season below! 

Let's do this.

The fans!

The lineup.

The pitch.

The hit!
