Young start-up studio, tapping into the location-aware niche, developing a mid-core social free2play RPG – TakeOver; built in HTML5 using Open APIs.
The first prototype of TakeOver won SeedCamp Copenhagen and attracted 2K early adopters, which encouraged the founders to iterate and go through with production.
After winning the Nordic Game Conference “Who Dares Wins” pitching competition, founder Mihai Gheza raised a seed round from angel investor Erik Robertson (head of the Nordic Game Program) and gathered a handful of top-notch industry professionals on the advisory board. He then teamed up with Alin Moldovan, former CTO of UPC Romania, and his development team – Axten – to release their first HTML5 title.
The company is incorporated in Malmö, Sweden, but the team works from several locations, like Copenhagen, Denmark and Cluj, Romania.
Future plans are to get to a full feature stable version, while building up a solid user base.
The founder is actively looking for publishing and investment opportunities.
