HistoryEarly History of Venomite Studios
Venomite Studios was founded by Paul Sokk, a young entrepreneur who wanted to create the next indie phenomenon. His game development ventures started when he was only 17 years-old working as a remote freelancer 3D artist from his home. Paul got his bachelors degree in Computer Science in 2017 and published his first mobile game Bunnyhop 4 months prior. He then started working as a back-end software developer at one of the Estonian biggest software development companies.Current State of Venomite Studios
A year after working as a software developer, Paul decided to kick Venomite Studios back into gear again. He moved back in with his parents and cut all his expenses as low as possible. He wanted to build an actual business out of it. So he started working on a game he called Mechanical Difficulties. In this game he combined the core mechanics of a real-time strategy game into a first-person shooter. While building the game he kept writing blog posts about his thoughts and made update videos to gather a fanbase around the game. 6 months after starting the development he had finished a working playable prototype. After testing the prototype at several events, he realized that it had great potential. A LOT of people were really loving the game. So now he is putting together a team and finding an investor to make his dream a reality.
