MixedBag actually started out as a 2 person development team – Founded in 2013 by ex-journalist Mauro Fanelli and graphic designer Andrea Gellato, who were focused on creating and developing new and original IPs for console, PC and mobile markets.
“The team has since grown into a 7 people party and our quest remains to value good ideas and dress them in striking new ways, being them abstract futuristic visions or tributes to past gaming ages. MixedBag is a licensed developer for all console platforms and has launched games on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, 3DS, Xbox One, iOS, Apple TV, PC and Mac.”
A collector’s physical limited edition on PlayStation 4 and PSVita will be available at later date from Limited Run Games – http://www.limitedrungames.com.
