There have been a couple exciting developments since our last update that will help to pave the way for the future of Headshot Labs and Killtype: Synthetic.
First, we secured a significant funding injection to grow Headshot Labs and ramp up development on Killtype: Synthetic. The investment comes from a fellow Estonian company, Klaasplast, and was arranged by our legal team, Lepmets & Nõges. Thanks so much to them both for their support and for sharing in our vision.
Second, the investment allowed us to lease a brand new office! The office will serve as a base of operations for the company and afford the team a dedicated work environment.
With the office nearly set up (we'll share some pics soon) and the team now well-established, we're happy to finally be able to put our full focus back on developing the game. We're very excited for the future!
