We’re proud to be at the forefront, crafting tools, processes, and assets in a harmonious AI-human collaboration.”

James Koh, CXO at Harmony Games, shared the studio’s long-term vision, stating:

“With the support of Griffin Gaming Partners, we aim to craft experiences where players find solace, delight, and genuine social connections. We are also envisioning experiences that extend beyond the game with ethical and positive marketing while fostering passionate communities.”

Phil Sanderson, Co-founder and Managing Director of Griffin Gaming Partners expressed confidence in Harmony Games’ vision, stating, “Harmony Games is poised to reshape the future of the mobile puzzle game industry, and we are excited to be a part of this transformative journey, unlocking new dimensions of entertainment and connection for gamers worldwide.”
