“It’s not everyday that a developer as talented as the Hoa team creates such a beautiful work of art,” said PM Studios CEO Micahel Yum in a press release. “The level of care Skrollcat Studio has taken is evident in every frame as you discover the beautiful world they lovingly crafted.”
Skrollcat Studio director Son Tung Cao added, “Three years ago a tiny cute idea skipped into our minds. We set out to build a beautiful living world around it that tells its own tale, and we can’t be any happier now that we can share with you where the journey has taken us. We hope everyone will have as much joy exploring the world of Hoa as we have had creating it.”
