Frima Studio Games Fall Preview
On August 22, I had a chance to sit down with the team from Frima Studio to talk about their upcoming games this fall. After getting the inside scoop on the titles, I only need two words to describe my experience: PURE FUN.
If you’re not too familiar with Frima organization, they are a Canadian-owned game studio that does an incredible job when it comes to smart, fun, and face-paced gaming.
I was introduced to five games that are all set to release roughly within the next month. I had my chance to get hands-on with all but two. Here’s the rundown.
