Description

Paprika Games makes games for mobile devices that make the hours fly by. Based in Utrecht, the Netherlands, the studio was founded by three people with very different backgrounds in design and production, programming and art.

History

Early Days

Michel Baartman, Hugo Heemskerk and Remmelt Blessinga have been long time friends before founding Paprika Games in December 2013. Even while they were working on their first game, Hugo was busy graduating from Utrecht University and got his bachelor of science in Computer Sciences in January. Michel had just finished his degree in game art during which he spend some time working with Ronimo Games and Remmelt was working at Guerrilla Games as junior producer while also working to get his bachelor in Game Design and Development.

After that

With only 4 months of development time the team first created Worldlet, a small sandbox game for iOS that was released in june 2014. Worldlet was originally intended to test their skills as a team and to discover the world of self-publishing but has performed well since its launch, getting several thousands of downloads in just a few months and overall high ratings and reviews. During this project they were joined by two audio designers, Daniel Schotsborg and Yannis Tzav, looking to get into the world of game audio. After the release of Worldlet, Paprika started working on Knituma, a crazy knitting game for iOS which is expected to be released in the autumn of 2014.
