SUMMARY

Development is as creative as it is technical and the creative aspects of development are more creative than acknowledged. Empowering game devs by encouraging collaborative development, enables them to build better games in an innovative co-working environment (our game house) and expand the perspective of how video games are achieved. Our mission is to highlight the intricacies of how video games are developed and expand the realm of competitive gaming in the process.
