Like the Apollo Program, brought the best and brightest to achieve amazing things, we are bringing exceptional people together to create extraordinary mobile games. Our team has a unique understanding of the three pillars necessary for success in mobile games - science, art and business. We know how to turn ideas into successes and are agile enough to execute quickly on rapidly moving market trends and opportunities. This is reflected in the amazing reception of our debut titles, already being played by millions of players worldwide”.

We are very fortunate to partner with Velo Partners, who are just as excited as we are about the opportunities in the mobile games market, and also share our conviction that putting people at the core of everything we do is the only way to create a great company”.

Eyal Chameides, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer at Tripledot Studios, previously the Creative Director and part of the founding team at Product Madness commented: “The secret to making great games is actually deceptively simple: bring incredible people together and give them a brilliant, fun and creative environment that enables them to do what they do best. Creating a game should be a as joyful as playing one.”
