“I remember playing video games with my brother when we were young. We would goof around and laugh at each other and fight with our elbows. We made this game because we hope to take you back to these good times. So gather your buddies and beat the hell out of each other!”

– Greg Dalek, creative lead, Flaming Flamingo, internal dev team

“This is a whole new story for Artifex Mundi and for me personally. Moving away from AAA games like Dying Light was a jump into the unknown. Today I’m super proud and honored to be helping Flaming Flamingo with their game. I can’t wait to get this game out there and meet the fans!”

– Matt Binkowski, Head of Publishing, Artifex Mundi
