Who we are (in case we've just met):
Sand Sailor Studio is an independent game development studio, founded in 2014 in Bucharest. Our story started by participating at Square Enix Collective with our first prototype for Black The Fall. The positive feedback empowered us to build a successful campaign on Kickstarter, which was followed by our participation at Execution Lab's accelerator program, where we decided to reshape our game. Since then we grew into a fizzy team of 8 and we're laser-focused on developing Black The Fall, planned to be launched beginning of 2017.
