Description

Dawn of Play is an independent game development studio and an amazing team of gamers since childhood. Led by passion we give birth to fun and innovative games. We believe in gameplay before bling, skill before luck, fun before patience.

History

Early history

Dawn of Play was founded by Žiga Hajduković and Rok Jamnik together with the team from their research and development studio Razum. Their first game Monkey Labour, after being largely ignored until its first big update 3 months later, received high critical acclaim for its polish and quality production. An innovative brain game Twinoo release followed Monkey Labour tightly and has since accumulated almost half a million downloads, albeit most of them Free. Building on its image of quality game creators, Dawn of Play released Dream of Pixels in November 2012 and received amazing response from the press.

Dream of Pixels

The overwhelming critical acclaim of Dream of Pixels culminated in the #1 spot on metacritic.com in November 2012 with Angry Birds Star Wars coming in second to Dream of Pixels. Together with stellar App Store reviews, Dawn of Play firmly established itself as a high quality game developer.

Recent

Dream of Pixels was recently launched on Android, establishing Dawn of Play on the Google Play Store as well. Dawn of Play is now planning to release three new games in 2014, a puzzle adventure Roll Back Home, a spatial memory game Flip the Dice and an action game featuring cute Furries.
