About the company
The company's main product belongs to the APP sector. It is related to the online gaming industry but it is not a gaming company itself. The company focuses on content creation (storytelling). It was founded some years ago by experienced professionals coming from the gaming industry.

One of the great features of the company's product is that it is interactive. The consumer can choose the way the story develops by clicking/choosing some specific options.

Its product is targeted mostly to the overseas market and the company already uses 10 languages and has product presence in 15 countries.

It is a great start up with creative professionals (including engineers). In the near future, they want to become the main platform for this field and become a huge repository, even of stories created by individuals.

The company creates content from scratch and it is always original content. Accordingly, creativity and originality are the mantra of the company.
