Mindware Studios was established back in 2002 for the sole purpose: to create original and entertaining games for all platforms. Already in 2005, the company released its very first game for the PC as well as the XBOX platform called Cold War, which was well received by critics and players alike. By the way, our own top-notch engine Meng was developed for this particular game. Two years later, we finished a sequel to the outstanding action game Painkiller subtitled Overdose. Loyal to our original intentions, we have since developed two very powerful and original concepts down to the prototype phase, projects for which we are still looking for publishers. At present, we are working on another of our own projects.
