Their talented development team consists of industry-proven concept, character, environment, and technical artists, animators, designers, and programmers. A carefully crafted development pipeline assures smooth results in every aspect of their project, whether working autonomously or as part of a focused team. They use efficient work methods, such as Scrum sprint milestones and daily play tests to meet their goals and produce games that gamers will be excited to play.
