"We finally chose flaregames, as they understand strategy games, they understand mobile, and they understand F2P. And they are gamers at heart who share our vision. We are building a great game together."

Flaregames CEO Klaas Kersting added, "Superweapon is everything we're looking for in a developer: They have a unique and ambitious game in the making, they are experienced developers who know their craft - and they are really nice guys to work with."
