“As a publisher in the new digital economy, you have to listen real well. When an independent developer like this tells you ‘Hey, we know this is your baby and all, but we have this great idea for an expansion’, you better pay attention, said Bo Andersson Klint, CEO of Starbreeze AB. He continued “We listened and realized Lion Game Lion pitched a true PAYDAY idea for a great heist. The collaboration has gone very smoothly and I truly feel our players will enjoy this OVERKILL and Lion Game Lion mash-up.”

“Getting the opportunity to stand on our own feet and at the same time be able to continue working on the PAYDAY-franchise is just awesome”, said Nikica Petrusic, President of Lion Game Lion. “OVERKILL is the bomb, and the Lion’s are going to blow you away. Lets do this!”

Lion Game Lion, founded in 2013, is an independent studio located in Zagreb, Croatia employing industry veterans from OVERKILL Software and elsewhere.
