2016

2016-Present, WeJoy Games, Founder

www www.wejoygames.com is an indie game studio focused on developing fun, casual games for mobile & PC.

We straddle the line between casual and hardcore. Believe it or not, we've spent as many hours in Bejeweled Blitz and Disney Tsum Tsum, as we have farming legendaries in WoW or Diablo III. We LOVE playing match 3's (yeah, you heard us). We drink a lot of coffee, and we want to learn as much as possible while making games we love.

WeJoy hopes to create games with great core gameplay, interesting characters, and satisfying experiences. Our story is to be continued, and we welcome you to follow along. Thank you!
