Shadow Bug started as a student project in Aalto University, Helsinki Finland, and has now grown to be something much bigger. Aalto is where a pro gamer and a game artist could meet and form Muro Studios in 2015. Our powers were first combined in a game jam game of planetary nuclear warfare and we haven’t looked back since. Shadow Bug is now live on Nintendo Switch!
