So, who are we? We are a small, experienced and passionate team of international game modders and professional developers that was initially formed under the banner of Sandstorm Productions. The majority of our team previously worked together on the highly respected modification 'Mare Nostrum', for Red Orchestra: Ostfront. This subsequently became the first ever non-source engine mod to be released over Steam in 2008. Since late 2010 we have been working on In Country: Vietnam for Red Orchestra 2 under the new banner of Pop Smoke Games.
