About italo Games
Italo Games was born from the chance meeting of a developer and a designer who were working at the same mobile game company in Milan. They soon realized that they shared a common vision on the game they wanted to make. Hence they decided to put everything else aside: they found an Italian investor, hired a great freelance pixel artist from Bari and started working tirelessly to make the Milanoir dream come true. Italo Games is a young team which aims to make games with a strong focus on aesthetics and narratives.
