About Mixed Realms
Mixed Realms is an indie studio from Singapore. Founded in 2016, their small team of 4 has grown to 20 members strong after the triumphant launch of their first game, Sairento VR. They attribute their success to the feedback they receive from the gaming community and their dedication to creating high-quality games. It is their belief that, while the studio is responsible for coming up with the core concepts and master plan for any game, gamers play a vital role in bringing about changes and new elements. That’s why it is very important for them to always consult and work with the community to improve and bring their games to the final stage.
DevilCow is the moniker used by solo developer Daniel Yu. Daniel has been making games since the age of 16 and -after catching the VR bug- was inspired to recreate the experience of his favorite 90s-era puzzle games in VR by making PathCraft.
