History

Long-time friends, Aurélien and Jérémie have implemented several ideas since their university period. Their desire to create something in common has been there since 2010.

In 2010, they are working on a project for a car traffic simulator to optimize flows in cities. This project will not see the light of day before 2015. Fan of video games and code, they have skimmed the tutorials basic, VB, C++, java, ...

Building on the experience of Rush Hour, which was intended more for marketing to communities and urban planning departments, a shift was made towards video games. "We know how to develop, we love video games, we love to create, we know the gamers' codes. Allied to a favorable context, it became obvious to develop this activity.

The company was founded in September 2020 with a team of four people. Now we are ready to rule the world !
