Posted by Pech93 on Apr 19th, 2013
Hello everybody. Today Pandora's Toybox is officially born. After months of the hard work of every team member, the moment is finally arrived. Maybe you've already heard about us, or maybe not. Anyway, here we are.
We chose the team name together. The name Pandora's Toybox is a reference to a greek mithology object, the Pandora's box, the legendary container of all the world's evil, but at the same time the container of hope.Revisited today in the name and in the form, the toybox contains infinite gaming possibilities. Indeed the choice of the name isn't random: for us to open the box means to open our mind, take out interesting concepts from it and develop these concepts without the concern of staying necessarily on the same game genre, but letting the inspiration and the wish to experiment carry us from time to time.You'll never know what could come out from this box. To open it it's only up to you.Our motto is "You'll never know what's coming next!"
-What we do
We develop indie games for smartphones (only android systems for now) Our collaboration started thanks to our common passion for videogames, those we like to play: because first of all we are videogame player, and we think you can't do games if you're not a passion driven player.
