"We've taken inspiration from many different games to provide the ever growing mobile gamer community with something unique, something they haven't got to play before," said Direlight's lead game designer Ville Mäkynen. "We have already received tremendously positive feedback from those who have been playing early versions of the game, so we are excited to see the reactions from the wider audience."
