Greatest successes

2012
Moving from 2D to 3D

After 2 years of freelancing and making 2D games, we had enough clients, completed projects and budget to start experimenting and do our first 3D projects.

2013
Freelancer.com distinction

"It looks like all your hard work over the past year has earned you a place among the top 1000 freelancers in the world."

2014
Our first Unity 3D workshops

AGH University of Science and Technology asked us to conduct 2 weeks workshops on making 3D games and so we did.

Our Mission

If our game costs player his money and time, let it be something valuable.

Be it a breathtaking experience, refreshing and relaxing jolt of adrenaline. Be it a piece of good narrative that would conceive thoughts of player's own morality, philosophy, life and death. Let us not leech upon primordial instincts of human fallen nature that would bind one to a device and make him or her lose hours clicking and tapping the same buttons over and over again to gain a new level, boost some numbers, get a new monster of item that is quite nice, but also quite cheap as it is a mere motionless picture. May our players feel that playing our games is a time well spent. I prefer making games that will be short, but rich.

Clients come to us with game ideas - sometime it is just vision, sometimes full game design doc. Sometimes they already have all graphic and sounds assets, sometimes not. We develop games starting from what they provided. We work strictly with our clients, presenting current results and making brainstorms with them. We are paid for development, client can earn much more if game will be success. Success of one side is success of another.

    We say what we mean and mean what we say. Both, with clients and inside a team.

  • Money is not enough

    We want change peoples' lives. This is why we are working on serious games, organize meetups and share our knowledge inside and outside team.
