Welcome to our Development Blog

Dare, and the world always yields: or, if it beat you sometimes, dare again, and it will succumb.

William Makepeace Thackeray

Picaresque [ˌpi-kə-‘resk]: characteristic of a form of prose fiction, originally developed in Spain, in which the adventures of an engagingly roguish hero are described in a series of usually satiric episodes.

I’ve always been intrigued by the word picaresque. It’s that kind of expression difficult to explain in few words without missing part of its meaning, like sehnsucht or – damn, I cannot recall another one. Zeitgeist? Free-to-play? ba dum tss

Anyway, it’s not just a nice word, it’s the one we thought was fitting better with our intentions starting this new adventure, few months ago. Well, I’ve put the definition up there, so I don’t have to explain any further.

Who are we?

We first met working for other development companies, we became friends and…you know the story…so, from now on, we are what you read and see on these pages.

Hope you’ll enjoy it.
