G2A Dev Studio goes independent as Monad Rock
The newly formed Monad Rock is composed of experienced industry specialists with many projects in their portfolio. The studio is currently open to strategic partnerships and is amid advanced negotiations with investors. Monad Rock’s first title will be available for sale in February 2018.
“We are confident that Monad Rock will achieve great success,” said Maciej Kuc, Head of PR at G2A.COM. “The studio has become independent, giving it full freedom to develop projects and talk with investors,” he continued.
G2A.COM, in turn, is focusing on two of its biggest products: G2A Marketplace and G2A PAY. “We are investing primarily in the development of our transaction system, machine learning, and blockchain technology. At present, this is where we will direct our maximum attention. In the future, however, we plan to work together with Monad Rock on various projects. In fact, we are still working with the studio on one joint venture – the life-saving VR application that helps teach doctors how to detect heart defects in unborn children,” added Kuc.
Monad Rock specializes in creating video games and applications based in virtual reality, but the studio’s ambitions do not end there. Subsequent products will be developed in various other technologies for both PCs and consoles.
“Working for G2A.COM has been a great experience for the entire team. It was an intense time for us. We worked hard, accomplished many things, and learned a lot,” explained Marcin Kryszpin, CEO of Monad Rock. “The next step in our development is establishing a free-standing studio. The projects and brands that we created together with G2A.COM will now be continued and developed by Monad Rock. From now on, we work independently.”
The studio’s newest project is Summer Funland, a simulator thanks to which players can experience all the fun of an amusement park without leaving home. It offers a myriad of attractions, including all the experiences available in G2A Land, classic theme park arcade games, and whimsical adventures, such as riding a neon unicorn through a psychedelic sewage tunnel. “It is worth noting that all players who currently own G2A Land will receive Summer Funland for free,” announced Marcin Kryszpin.
Monad Rock is also preparing its biggest title, the dynamic action game, Blunt Force. The FPS shooter catapults players right into the turmoil of World War II, combining intense gameplay with a thrilling story. The screenplay for Blunt Force is being crafted together with Hollywood screenwriter Mark Bristol. “It is a very ambitious project, which we will give greater details on soon. However, we are currently focused on preparing Summer Funland for its upcoming premiere,” added Kryszpin.
Summer Funland will be released in February 2018 on both Steam and the Oculus Store, and soon also on PlayStation VR.
