Back in 2017, 2Awesome Studio successfully developed Dimension Drive and after that moment, it has helped other studios publish games on a variety of platforms. Aeon Drive is the continuation of Dimension Drive and only the second game 2Awesome Studios has ever developed. David Jimenez (co-founder of 2Awesom Studio) said, “When we funded 2Awesome Studio in 2014 our main goal was to bring to market games with new and addictive mechanics. Thanks to the experience gained with our own games we are now happy to be able to announce our 2Awesome Partners initiative where we can help other great teams and bring even more awesome games to the players.”
