Unmechanical started in early 2011 as a student project at Futuregames, a game development education in Stockholm, Sweden. The Unmechanical team has doubled in size since the beginning, but has always been about a tightly knit team that collaborates rather than delegates. Most work has been done on the students’ free time, both during school and the following internships when the team was spread out across Europe. About half the Unmechanical team joined additional enthusiasts from the school and started Talawa Games to work on new projects. The new studio is hardworking, multi-talented, and passionate, which they hope will shine through with their games. Talawa is from Jamaican patois and means strong or sturdy, often used in the sense of “small but strong”.
