In-Verse (formerly In-Verse Productions) was a Writing Company, Video Game, Slot Machine and Visual Novel indie developer company founded by Sonikku Aensland in 2010, known for The Adventures of Vanessa, VSRFX and Dream Revolution series. However, more known since 2014, as the developers of the acclaimed Feast of the Black Strings. (Which is also the first Game which came in Physical form.)
Its games are original ideas made by the writer and creator itself. And also has a subsidiary named Shiny Star Games which acts as a Publisher.
In January 20, 2015 In-Verse Productions announced that changed their name in April 1, 2015 as just In-Verse.
In-Verse Filled for Bankruptcy in late 2017, concrete in early 2018.
Pauly-kun started writing stories before entering to the internet in December 2005, but were only small fragments in Spanish, later in 2006 just small concepts, but as for July 2007, wrote The Adventures of Vanessa. Which would span six more short stories, it would not have other static series until 2011 and said year she entered in the internet with VSRFX and in 2012 with Devil's Eye and Dream Revolution , 2013 with Re: Vengeance, which made her a little more known, but it wasn't until June 2014 that, Feast of the Black Strings, the what if could be the "last work" of the company after many years silent, and the introduction to the public made In-Verse a little more known.
"In" and "Universe" are the core words that the writer have to mix. "Verse" is short of Universe but also another word, so the pun is basically this "In-Verse" is "In Universe or In Verse". The word was Coined in October 12, 2013, but not confirmed until November 24 of the same year.
In-Verse was known as a "western niche company with crazy ideas and crossovers.", in 2015, it celebrated its 10th anniversary which ended celebrations in early 2016.
In 2017, as a commemoration of the five years of the "All-Stars/Heroes" label it was created the In-Verse All-Stars: Golden Selection, recently released games chosen by Pauly-kun, it spans a total of three waves and a fourth one is planned.
In-Verse was known for its constant collaborations with other companies.
In-Verse Filled for Bankrupt in early 2018, the licenses now belong to the writer independently from now on, and later titles will now be indies from now on.
The final title made is The Adventures of Vanessa: Generations.

While pretty open in localizations to America and Europe, In-Verse's games rarely get an Japanese or Australian release, most likely due to copyrights/authorship or lack of interest from the author or the companies.
- ACS Softworks - Japanese/Asian Distributor/Publisher until late 2016.
The crossover characters, the "Time Masters" are regarded as the mascot characters, however, different colored Butterflies are also prominent in the games, are seen as the writer's "author avatar".
Pauly-kun was known by her stories mixing dark and lighthearted stories into one, single work, some references are based on her ordinary life, others, taking inspiration of professional video games, manga, cartoons, etc. And the frequent female protagonists.
For Example The Adventures of Vanessa series is known by the female cast and the story with a simple storyline, The FEAST Saga in the other hand offers the probably complex storyline of the series as nobody can be easily trusted.
The motifs that often writes are: Action, idols, music, gothic, mecha, sci-fi, etc.
Pauly-kun herself had stated that no other games aside of Feast of the Black Strings, Project BREAK-OUT!,The Slashing Reaper and The FEAST Saga: Fight it Out! -2nd Sign- will go to PC and Steam due to many disputes between the developers and the many cancellations of games due to lack of developing and porting tools and "mastering" of the PC elements, these ports were mostly made with outsider collaborators.
