We are an independent developer and publisher specialized in mobile gaming since 2015.
Originally located in Montreal, we developed our activities and now also operate in Lyon, a central hub in Europe for video games.
We have a staff of 30 people today (Montreal 5 and 25 in Lyon). The 2 founders, Stéphane & Pierre have been in the game industry for more than 60 years all together!
We believe that mobile gaming hasn’t reached its full potential yet, and will grow to truly entertain and make people live their passion. That is our objective: create free-to-play mobile games to entertain a global audience.
We have a strong focus on racing and motorsport management games. With more than 5 racing games developed or co-developed over the last 4 years, we tend to be pretty good at it…We have also been involved in blockchain gaming for 2 years thanks to our collaboration with Animoca Brand.
Some of us started working in the game industry in the late 80’s, early 90’s. We share a common work experience at Infograms/Atari, which stand amongst the largest companies in the game industry at the time. We acted as producer, programer, and game director back then.
