It's intended as an evolution of Paper2D and contains everything you need to create amazing 2D games. No C++ knowledge is required, everything is accessible through blueprints.

Do you have an awesome idea that needs to be fleshed out and transformed into a game? Do you have a game already released that has been struggling to engage and monetize players?

We provide a full array of services from complete game development , game asset creation and design consultancy. Check below for our full list of services and don't hesitate to Contact Us.



Game Development

We currently use a mix of Unreal Engine and Unity, depending on the needs of the project. We provide full development services, from ideation and pre-production to product launch and post-launch support..That includes game design, project management, code implementation, asset creation and  3rd party library integrations.

Game Design

Not all projects need complete game development support. Some just need ideas fleshed out or existing designs reviewed and improved.We offer data driven design services for both new and existing projects including but not limited to : brainstorming, ideation, feature design, system design, game & economy balancing.


We help you monetize your game the right way, by custom tailoring the monetization system for each game by offering good value propositions to players, keeping them engaged for long periods of time. Our past experience taught us what the best practices are and most importantly, how to overcome the most common challenges associated to game monetization.

Technical Design

Content production is a major cost in videogame development. Having the correct pipeline setup for content production can sometimes be the difference between success and failure in the industry. 

We work with you to setup the best production pipeline suitable for your game and budget. We help you choose the best 3D modeling and animation software and practices suitable for your studio. We help you integrate  procedural tools such as Houdini , Quixel and Subtance that can significantly decrease iteration time and reduce the amount of discarded work, allowing you to release great games even faster.

Asset Creation

Need assets for you upcoming games or projects? We offer bespoke asset creation for all stages of development. From grayboxing and terrain creation to complete environments fully textured, rigged, animated and assembled directly in your engine of choice.

We use a wide array of industry standard software and have specialized pipelines depending on the project engine and needs.
