Sinister Cyclops Game Studios is an independent video game developer founded in 2014. The team consists of two inquisitive Greek American brothers who are first generation gamers. One, a tech savvy businessman and the other a musician with a passion for the digital arts. Far from being just a motto, “Old School meets New Technology “ reflects the dynamic duo’s contrast in age and character. If there’s one thing they have in common, it’s their laconic approach to video game creation: simple, straightforward and devoid of hype. Nearly four years in the making, their first game, “Spartan“, is a labor of love and the product of hard work and dedication.
