Our ambition is as simple as it is bold. To create a game that is Italy’s “Witcher 3”. A genre-leading AA title that is Italian through and through, brings something new to the formula and can sit proudly alongside existing titans, rather than beat them at their own game. Bright, fast and deeply satisfying – a fresh take on a stagnant subgenre. If this sounds exciting, then we are the team for you!
