Gamezaur / New Office
Our domain gamepocketstudio.com wasn’t too catchy and we felt a new name would be good for us too. It would be like opening a newRead more
During development of Rings few ideas and variations came to our head. One of them was Sticks, a game inspired by the table game ‘spillikins.’Read more

Time to catch some air
It was a real marathon. We were utterly exhausted by the Bulkypix situation and by working with the same game engine for so long. WeRead more
Bankruptcy and indie-pendence
Our time with Bulkypix came to an end. We weren’t getting our payments on time, and finally… we weren’t receiving them at all. We couldRead more

The first office
Game development was no longer our hobby – it was a plan! A plan difficult to implement on the weekends and evenings. We had toRead more
