CM Softworks is an independent game development studio based in Winnipeg, MB Canada. We specialize in PC Games with innovative game design driven by the community involvement in the development process.

Company History


CM Softworks’ second title, Scorch, was recently submitted to Steam Green Light and after only 6 days of the campaign it was well over half way to the top 100 Green Light Projects.

During the campaign we have been working on improving the gameplay elements and adding new content. The game’s concept is a mix of the old school classic platformer gameplay and the modern technology graphics and game design. We are striving to create an immersive world with a background story, while keeping the players focusing on a nostalgic, fast paced gameplay.

At CM Softworks Inc. we believe that the most important aspect of the game development is to include the gaming community in the process, our projects continue to be community driven and build on the success that our mutual passion has created.

About Scorch


Human age of industry caused a steady depletion of the ozone layer, that could not be stopped. Multiple holes in ozone opened up around the world, exposing Earth to the direct solar radiation. This affected plant growth and produced radicals in seawater that killed most marine organisms, and wildlife. Scorching the face of the Earth, turning it into a barren wasteland.


Scorch is a fast paced action shoot em up platformer, set in a post-apocalyptic modern world. A Story Driven gameplay will put players in control of the main character and unravel the story through a series of campaign levels, each taking players through the scorched ruins of our world.
