As well as relocating its Stockholm studio to bigger premises, video game publisher Raw Fury has opened a new studio in Zagreb, Croatia.
The relocation sees Raw Fury moving from its prior premises in Gamla Stan, Stockholm and moving to “The House of Fury” in Södermalm, Stockholm, which the publisher describes as “the hotbed of the Swedish games industry scene”.
“We’ll miss that place but for the future of Fury, we ended up needing a whole house,” said Jonas Antonsson, founder of Raw Fury. “Because somehow, over the last couple of years, Raw Fury has grown to close to 40 people, spread around five countries and two continents. Crazy.”
The new Croatian studio – called “Fury Studios” – enables “Raw Fury to offer its developers direct support with anything technical – porting, code optimization, feature development, test and deployment automation, API integrations, and more”.
“We’ve grown as we started seeing too many games that were just pure magic and we simply had to figure out a way to work with the amazing developers behind them. This meant finding new Furies to help us ensure that we would stay true to not neglecting any developer.”
Raw Fury believes this expansion comes because of its ethos of “treating people like people”, developing “for happiness over profit” and believing that “games are art”. “Instead of pitting developers and publishers against each other, Raw Fury has focused on building positive and healthy relationships with its partners,” a press release said.
“Raw Fury is an experiment,” Antonsson added. “An attempt to show that you can be kind and trusting and try to always do the right thing and you can still be successful. This is the fundamental underpinning of the Tenets of Fury.”
