Description

We're team of fun-loving developers and pixel lovers, geeks, nerds, gamers, designers, PM’s and a guinea pig named Boris. We build our games slowly and definitely pay too much attention to details.

History

Our focus

We're focused on creating beautiful games that connect deeply with players providing nostalgic and memorable experiences.

Our first in-house game

Although we've previously delivered more than 20 games and apps, we're very excited to release Pocket Troops as our first fully independent project. It's been a labor of love of the last two years, passing through 2 iterations of complete re-design so the game can be as good as possible.
