About The Moon Pirates :

Founded in June 2020, the Bordeaux-based studio The Moon Pirates is currently preparing for the launch of Crypto Is Dead, their first purely independent game. Crypto Is Dead was born from the desire to challenge itself. Following the release of Don't Forget Me, its first game, which was also a challenge, the studio wanted to give a shot at self-publishing and making a procedural game on a short production cycle. To release an attractive, visually beautiful game in a calm yet stressful universe... In short, the perfect ingredients for an exciting challenge.
