History

Early history

Alex Nechita & Alex Nae met on the internet at a crossroad of both their lives. Alex Nechita was working in the game industry as a game dev but his spirit wanted to be free from the corporate machine. Alex Nae went through another programmer who abandoned him after working for months at another iteration of his game. He met Nechita via a Facebook group and they imediately clicked. With similar interests in media and games, they hit it off immediately. It was then, that a beautiful friendship began to blossom.

After that

Alex Nechita then decided to quit the corporate life and join Alex Nae. The latter also was convinced to give it another shot. The original incarnation of was a mobile game. But seeing the potential for something greater, the guys reworked the game mechanics while staying true to the spirit of the game.
