History

What happens when an architect designs a mobile game? That's what we thought, and so we embarked on this project to create a game that we like to play and look at ourselves. It has a vivid, colorful appearance, and a minimalistic gameplay that remains challenging and fun. The name Tindrops is inspired from the sound that raindrops make when falling on tin cans. It's also the sound the dots make when you hit them. Jos Blom is an independent architect, who's also active in stage- and product design. Markus is a software engineer who has worked in the serious gaming industry before starting his own company, where he works as an independent consultant.
