"We embrace the concept of being a Nerd. We are nerds ourselves. For example, we know Han shot first and will complain until we're blue in the face that Disney should release the original theatrical cuts of Star Wars. We want Firefly back more than anything. We find solace in a retro video game console sincerely and without a single trace of hipster irony. In terms of being nerds, we are the real deal. Welcome to Castwave Studios. It's Entertainment for Nerds, by Nerds." - Sean Holmes, Co-founder
