Playstos Entertainment was founded in the Spring of 2001 by Luca Da Rios, a graduate in Engineering of the Politecnico University in Milan.
Playstos’ development path includes both industry standard and state-of-the-art in-house tools and technology. Our cross-platform technology has been developed and evolved since 2003 and allows us to efficiently work on different game genres as well as true multi-platform development.
We are an independent developer focused on small console games and we are a registered and authorized developer for Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DSi, Playstation 2, Playstation 3, Xbox 360, PSP (Playstation Portable), Apple iPhone/iPad, Google Android and Samsung BADA. Our experience covers obviously also Windows, Linux and Mac OSX PC game development.
Playstos works in partnership with Inky Mind UK and Inky Mind ITALY on the creation of visual assets for big projects.
Playstos is currently working on RWR (Real World Racing) a PC game available on Steam and on some DLC (Downloadable Contents) and on Virtual Sport games including Boxing, Soccer, Superbike Racing, Hockey and Basketball.
