“Early Morning Studio is an exciting company that brings a lot of value to Thunderful,” said Brjánn Sigurgeirsson, CEO of Thunderful Group. “We’re always looking for studios with an established record of putting out great games and Early Morning Studio is a prime example of that. They are a golden nugget on an upward curve - Vampire’s Fall: Origins has been an incredible success, Champions of Avan’ s launch has exceeded expectations and the best is yet to come with their biggest project yet, the in-development Vendir: Plague of Lies. We’re excited to be a part of that journey with them. Their mobile expertise will help support us as we continue to grow mobile alongside our console and PC business. Adding their knowledge of how to make engaging free-to-play titles to Thunderful will be a huge advantage in a segment that has a bright future ahead.”
