Founded by games industry veterans, Stellar Core Games is the latest edition to the Wildlife Studio portfolio. 

Based out of Helsinki, Finland, Chief Creative Officer, Touko Tahkokallio was Game Lead for titles such as Brawl Stars, Everdale and Clash Quest, and was also the original game designer for Boom Beach and Hay Day. He is also a prolific board game designer. Studio Director, Serdar Soganci has been in the Game Development industry since 2003. He was the Head-of-Studio at Rovio Entertainment, developer of the iconic Angry Birds franchise, and more recently the Game Lead for the puzzle game, Best Fiends.

“Wildlife Studios has offered us an opportunity of a lifetime,” said Tahkokallio. “In doing so, we will be laser-focused on creating games that we’ve been dreaming about for years. With the abundance of talent in Helsinki we are excited for the future of Stellar Core and what we will be creating together.”

Stellar Core games will not be constrained to any particular genre and intend to explore different opportunities in the gaming space. They believe that the best future games should offer something fresh and new for players while leveraging the learnings from past games. Ultimately, they think games should be simple and offer as much depth as possible.

Wildlife Studios is rapidly expanding its support for affiliated studios, providing premium support and infrastructure so that these industry trailblazers can focus on what they do best: making great games.
