CodeHatch are the developers behind Starforge. The creators include Stephen Smolley and William Sworin.

The official site describes the studio as follows:

CodeHatch Inc. was formed in 2012 as a company with the aim to make games that allow players to easily create whatever kind of universe they want. We plan to always put our players first and be a very community oriented company.

We are working on our first title, StarForge, which was just released in very early alpha at the end of May 2012.

Although it is a small company as of now, we hope StarForge will help fund future growth.
