“We aim to create original intellectual property focused on refined and well-crafted gameplay," he said. 

"We are forming a small and agile team, initially dedicated to prototype development. We will harness the extensive experience of the core team to deliver top-tier gaming experiences.”

Polfeldt continued: “We’re eager to collaborate with seasoned developers who share our passion for the craft and what I truly believe is a distinctive and promising project. Our mission is to redefine the standards of excellence in a key gaming genre, prioritising player satisfaction."
