Usagi-chan: a cute little bunny who just needed a player’s help to make desserts. When first experimenting with game development, Intropy Games co-founder and software engineer Lisa Walkosz-Migliacio thought a character like Usagi-chan would be a fun and interesting way to get new kinds of players interested in gaming. Her partner, Michael Migliacio, was more than a little…overtaken by the barrage of pink fuzzy cuteness emanating from Lisa’s laptop screen. Would there be an audience for a game like this? All doubts were quickly erased when the final version of Usagi-chan Bunny Treats – a combination game where players combine sets of items to create brand new recipes – racked up over 350,000 downloads upon release on iOS via the App Store.
In 2014, following the success of Usagi-chan Bunny Treats, Michael and Lisa officially formed Intropy Games into a fully-fledged company, aiming to create more games that can be enjoyed by everyone.
Currently, Intropy Games is a licensed developer for Nintendo Wii U and Sony PlayStation 4. We are always looking for strategic partners to bring our games to mobile, console and PC platforms.
