Description


It is a fact that there are many publishers out there. We are developers ourselves and you can imagine that changes a lot. We have experience many talks with publishers and work with some, learning a lot of lessons of how things shouldn't have done. We make games and want to publish games which we love playing. There are many great games out there, being developed by great teams, but sooner or later many of them face problems that can ruin the potential. With our help, they can avoid that and together we can bring those game to life.
