Wolfray Entertainment was founded by Denys Malyshev in 2014, after a year working on the first game – Manipulated. The whole process of developing the game and establishing the company took quite a long time, because he passed it alone and on his own savings. At the same time, Denys had to combine the development of the game and a day job. Handle all the difficulties and complete the game wouldn’t be possible without friends and freelancers support who put their heart into this project. When the game development was over, Maksym Lupashko (community manager) joined the studio, after which the company began active communication with its audience.
