Haraldur Thormundsson CEO and self-proclaimed Circus Direct over at The Bearded Ladies, recently had this to say regarding the long challenging development cycle of the game and how Funcom helped finish it off.
“We are a small indie team and it has been a long and challenging journey getting to where we are today, but we are incredibly proud of what we have created with Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. With Funcom’s support we have had the opportunity to create the game we have always wanted to make. Now it is in the hands of the players and we cannot wait to hear what they have to say about it.”
