“I wanted to work with Cold Furnace because it bridges my two loves – the military and software game development. These people get me, and I feel like I’ve found a home. Atrocity: Field of Hands is our first title at Cold Furnace. What an honor to be involved in such a landmark property from a very cool game studio!”
