Two games have already been developed by us from over hundreds of play-testing sessions. We’ve received very positive feedback from about 300 hundred play-testers. We will run two Kickstarter campaigns this year to raise more funding, attain users and get an investor on board. MoRally is a small seed-funded startup where you can expect a base salary but a significant amount of shares, and endless opportunities for growth!
