Futuremark Games Studio was formed in January 2008 to create original games with new and entertaining gameplay. The independent studio’s releases include Unstoppable Gorg for iPad, Mac and PC; Hungribles, a skill shot puzzle game for iPhone and iPad; and Shattered Horizon a zero gravity FPS for PC.
