WHY WE INVESTED
Snowstorms could not keep us from visiting the Breaking Walls team in Montreal, even though we never saw so much snow in our entire lives in the city! Having processed a successful kickstarter exceeding their goals of 200%, proposing the ability to play a sugar glider, we thought this was probably the most bad ass idea we had heard in a while. Away the survival series Offers us all to reflect on nature and the price to preserve it. To pull it all off, the team benefits from a one of a kind triptych: new and bold entrepreneurship with Sebastien Nadeau, meticulousness for each detail with Nathanael Dufour in the artistic direction completed by tranquil and experienced Laurent Bernier with his comprehensive director track record over at Ubisoft. Solid track record, market interest proof and chemistry in the team as well as a niche game on an underserved segment made the call for investment easy. All in honour of mother nature, with a divine soundtrack by Mike Raznick (Composer: Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty – Call of Duty: Advanced warfare […]).
