We make games like we make food
We are an independent video game studio founded by industry veterans. To sum it up we often say we make games like we cook food: with a lot of care. We want to create that experience that you remember, that you have fantasies about long after it’s finished, and that makes you feel alive and energized.
Our studio is based in Montpellier in France – right above a bakery – but we work with a team of great collaborators around the world. They share our taste for making good games while having fun.
SQUIDS, our underwater tactical RPG on mobile is a great success with an average 5 star user rating. SQUIDS Wild West, followed in its footsteps. SQUIDS Odyssey, the ultimate SQUIDS compilation is also available for Wii U™ and Nintendo 3DS™.
Combo Crew our modern take on the old-school brawlers was released in 2013, bringing fighting games to mobile with innovative touch controls and smooth asynchronous co-op play. Kotaku called it « the definitive beat-em up of the mobile age of gaming » and that made us happy. Thanks to Capcom we were able to add the heavyweights from Street Fighter 2 and Viewtiful Joe into the game.
We are now working on code name DUELS, our next creation for console and PC, which we hope to be able to show you very soon.
