This is Thunderful


Thunderful Publishing was founded in December 2017 in Gothenburg, Sweden as a sister company to game studios Image & Form and Zoink. This new collaboration means that the companies can now act more forcefully and bring something very attractive to the market.

The Thunderful family consists of four sister-companies wholly owned by Thunderful AB: Image & Form International AB, Zoink AB, Thunderful Publishing AB, and Rising Star Games Inc.
