We met during an academic program in the year 2018.
How did you come up with the idea? What motivated you to do this?
During the academic program we found out that we had a lot of things in common like interest in Robotics, games, and also similar thinking. The idea of making a game Company wasn’t really there initially, we just thought about making a couple of games. We were surfing YouTube and found a video game release trailer of The Last of Us 2, we were amazed with the Photorealism and other details in the game. Then we talked about making small game projects after the academic program. We starting learning with Unity game engine which was quite fun and we thought this was something we could dive into.
