We are a very small team with big ambitions! Creating videogames is the job of our dreams!
We started this adventure on March 2011 with a very little budget and lots of hopes. Our goal was to create an awesome “little” game with a funny non-sense story.
We’re just two people, an Italian and an Australian guy. The Balbarian is our first videogame,

James grew up in Brisbane, Australia. Ever since getting their first family computer in the early nineties, he has been hooked on computer games. As a youngster the seed for games was planted while spending many an afternoon mastering classic Commodore 64 games like Boulder Dash and R-Type. Since then things have only spiralled out of control with his love for games to the point where not content with just playing computer games he wanted to learn how to make them!
James Studied at Qantm College and graduated with a Bachelor of Interactive Entertainment majoring in animation. Upon graduating he began work at Krome Studios and then later The Creative Assembly. Inspired by the success story of Halfbrick and the rise of mobile gaming, James decided to start a company and begin making mobile games with fellow indie developer Federico. Creating and releasing The Balbarian has been a major milestone for James.
