What else does Flying Wild Hog do?

The studio was founded in 2009 by Michał Szusta and former staff of CD Projekt and People Can Fly. After his debut, after the “Hard Reset” shooter, he came to the Devolver Digital studio, looking for the right team to create a game with a “Shadow Warrior” license – a cult FPS from the 90s.
