Team Jolly Roger

From Interplanetary Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Team Jolly Roger is a group of Finnish nerdy people with a passion for creating games. Many of us have known each other since high school and worked together for years on both commercial and just-for-fun projects. Our curiosity for game development was turned into profession at Kajaani University of Applied Sciences. Our specialties so far have been mobile games and XNA, but right now we are independently developing our first PC title, called Interplanetary.
