Sean Megaw, Founder of Kemojo Studios states, "While at Fathom Interactive we developed Drone: Shadow Strike, which garnered more than 10 million users, generated an ARPPU of $18 USD and highly positive reviews since its release 2014. When we formed Kemojo we knew we wanted to refine that experience and deliver more of what the fans loved about that game. We have known the SPYR management team for years and are ecstatic to have them onboard for this launch."
Paul Thind, Managing Director of Games & Applications states, "I am very excited to be working with Sean and Kemojo to publish and market Drone Wars. Kemojo has created some wonderful and very successful games, including Drone: Shadow Strike. We think that Drone Wars is an even better and more expansive game and we are sure that the millions of players who loved Drone: Shadow Strike and similar games are also going to play and become engaged with Drone Wars."
