Charting the way forward
We are leading the core mobile gaming revolution.Join us.
We think that the shift in mobile gaming towards a more core and immersive experience is way too slow. We want to give it a hard push! That’s why, while working on our first, epic game (still hush-hush, by the way), we wrote down the key principles for all our games:
- Easy-to-access, hard-to-master
- Innovative UX
- High production values
- Real time 3D
- Epic characters
- Real time multiplayer
- Rich game world
The key founders have been instrumental to the creation of games and services that changed the way mass audiences approach narrative, action and community in interactive entertainment.BTW: We’re hiring!
