Sunday

We develop and publish hyper-casual games for anyone who loves to be entertained. We’re global game makers with big ambitions and a collaborative mindset. We work in small teams to inspire creativity and use data for speedy decision-making. Creating video games is supposed to be fun, so we make sure it’s exactly that.
