Our Online Halloween Image Parade
Distance is not a reason not to celebrate the holidays together. In honor of Halloween, we held a corporate competition for the most terrible (in a good sense of the word) image. With the help of our imagination, modern technology and the mystical aura of the most mysterious day of the year, we managed to brew a unique potion of stunning, shocking and terrifying images, each of which deserves its own portion of the dropped jaw. The choice was difficult, but Edward Scissorhands captured the palm.

Important Pandemic Schedule Update
Important Pandemic Schedule Update
Remote but connected. The complex pandemic situation forces us to make quick decisions designed to protect our colleagues from tangible danger and ensure that they are maximally distanced from unwanted contact with the ubiquitous virus. Our decision was to extend the remote work mode until May 2021. But no matter what, we remain a united team and succeed in adapting to the current realities, which we are sure are temporary. We hold regular online meetings to discuss important work issues, and also make weekly calls to support each other, hear familiar voices, share the news, and just crack life-affirming jokes. We look forward to shaking hands again and continuing to contribute to the exciting world of game development shoulder to shoulder. In the meantime, we will do it remotely.
