Description

Bugbyte is an independent game studio based in Turku, Finland. Founded in March 2012 by two brothers, the company inhabits a team of gamers with a passion for creating games. In addition to the 3 man team, the indie studio is lucky to have a group of amazing collaborators who help create awesome games. In the past, Bugbyte has primarily focused on charity games. Now, the indie studio wants to do something truly epic, something for the hardcore gamers. The old spirit lives on though, and the studio looks forward to helping charities in the future. Bugbyte has been through a lot in its 5 year life span, and was at risk to declare bankruptcy in 2015 when all finances were depleted and the only hope was the newest then upcoming title Battlevoid: Harbinger. In the end Battlevoid: Harbinger was to become the companys first commercial success, and the indie studio lived on to create more games for its fans. Bugbyte stands out by creating hard core premium games for both mobile and PC, supporting seamless cross-platform play with cloud saves. Bugbyte is one of the few companies left that still believe in the premium monetization model, even on mobile.

History

The universe of Battlevoid

Humanity had grown past the capacity of earth to support it. In the year 2259, colony ships were sent out on a mission to explore and colonize new worlds. What followed was an eventful time for humans, as new habitable planets were discovered and as numerous alien species were encountered. Conflicts were inevitable, but in the end diplomatic relations were established with each new race. However, humans were not ready for what was about to happen - one by one, human colonies were annihilated. A dark force was on the move, and the threat was closing in on Earth, fast. Battlestation was built to be humanity's last hope.
