Summary

Hamsters Gaming history began a long time ago and recently at the same time. With many people from our team, we worked together before Hamsters Gaming. With someone a year, with someone for five years. That's why when we came together we did not spend time on grinding, and immediately started to create the highest quality games. Many staff members have grown in the strongest professionals in the largest and most renowned companies. We are proud that we were able to collect such powerful professionals in one team. For a very small amount of time, we were able to run 1 game and getting ready for the second release. We were able to show ourselves in business and now we are looking for the next step forward and step higher.
