This is the message appeared in the site of the company:
We are excited to announce that Supercell has invested 5 million euros into Everywear Games.
Our journey as a company started in 2015 with the mission to create new kinds of game experiences – instantly accessible games which become part of our daily lives, entertaining us for weeks, months and years. During the past three years, we became the world’s leading creator of smartwatch games. Our experience with smartwatch games has taught us a lot and now we are taking these learnings to create even better game experiences. With our unique background we are looking to craft the next success stories in mobile gaming.
We think simple is beautiful. Simple on the surface, yet something that will keep players entertained for a long time. Our vision for our games has always been that game design is more important than the size of the screen. Games should be experiences which unfold as the player explores them further. A good game happens more in the mind of the player than on the screen, it widens the imagination and lives in people’s minds, like a good book does.
What really excites us is that this is only the beginning for us. We are set to start something new that offers us bigger audiences, new challenges and opportunities. The games industry is truly one of the most exciting industries on the planet. It is still in its infancy, yet it is growing fast and constantly creating new opportunities. An industry where small teams can create amazing things.
We are thrilled to start this new chapter! With Supercell supporting us we can now focus on our long term vision. Spread the word: We are hiring experienced people to our talented team! People who want to make a difference. People with ambition, passion and creativity. If you are one of those super professionals, get in touch right now!
