Traega Entertainment is an independent video game studio based in Nashville, TN. The studio is self-funded by founder Dax Hock who, with the creation of Traega in 2015, has turned his lifelong passion for video games into his dream business. “Since we don’t have a publisher, we don’t have any kind of restrictions on game design and we are able to set our own deadlines,” explains Hock. "My goal is to create something that we all want to play, something that we can all be proud of." Since opening, Hock has been strategically assembling a team of veteran game makers from around the country to create Traega Entertainment. The team has decades of industry experience from Blizzard, EA, Bungie, Microsoft, Psyonix, Gearbox Software, Santa Monica Studio, CCP, and Funcom.
Traega Entertainment landed in the Nashville area because of its incredible creative energy. Known for its world-class music scene, booming arts community, and high quality of life, the area is a prime location for a video game studio. “We are one of the first video game companies here and we are hoping to establish Nashville as a gaming hub,” Hock said. “I think it is pretty reasonable, considering what Nashville is all about in terms of creativity.”
