Description

Aquiris Game Studio is a company based in Porto Alegre, Brazil. With 10 years of history and a team of 70 people, we have been creating games for a broad range of platforms, from browser to PC and mobile. Our big focus since the very beginning has been on delivering the best artistic, technical and gameplay quality to our players, in partnership with our publishing partners. Now with Horizon Chase, the studio is taking a step further into the wild world of self-publishing, with a game that really translates our passion for the classics.

History

Aquiris was founded in 2007 by Amilton Diesel, Mauricio Longoni and Israel Mendes. They teamed up to develop virtual reality and advergames in a 30 square meter office. 20 games later, they got experience to grow the company to 60 people, including three new partners: Raphael Baldi, Kely Costa and Sandro Manfredini. Today Aquiris develops Cartoon Network great games like CN Superstar Soccer, The Great Prank War and also high quality original titles such as Ballistic, a free-to-play shooter with over 6M players, that is now coming to Steam as a paid FPS for the competitive PC players. Now Horizon Chase joins the portfolio as a premium title.
