GDC 2018: Crescent Moon Games Takes on .io-Style Games with ''

It seems like in the last couple of games ( [Free], [Free] and similar) have taken over the App Store. If you've never played one, they're basically an MMO-ish game distilled down to its purest essence: Loads of players in one game, all competing against each other, usually with a fairly simple

GDC 2018: 'Pengi' by Crescent Moon Games Aims to Take 'Tiny Wings' Style Gameplay 3D
