I strongly recommend Moonmana, as a reliable and trustworthy partner.

Andrey Zolotarenko

It’s been a challenge for us to find the right game development studio, as it is quite hard to choose a responsible partner to rely on. We chose Moonmana as they have worked with top-notch gaming companies for many years, and provided a fascinating portfolio.

We had no experience in game development before, and Moonmana studio helped us to create our first game, – Unity-based multiplayer PvP collectible card game, integrated with our own blockchain and with real-time YouTube celebrities.

Moonmana provided exceptional communication and step-by-step guided us from the pre-production to the release. All Unity developers from the Moonmana are highly experienced senior-level engineers which performed a really mature approach. Moonmana’s crew has been working closely with our in-house team of engineers, performing the perfect co-development synergy that culminated with the game release within a very strict deadline.


Pros :
  • Moonmana delivered amazing results, proved by high technical expertise and reliable workflow processes.
  • We received a successfully running mobile game on iOS and Android , seamlessly integrated to our blockchain, and all this in less than 6 months.
Cons :
  • Nothing to add. I wish the best to this company.

Good work at reasonable fast and easy to integrate with the rest of the team

T

We hired Moonmana to work on two apps that we didn't have time to. We specified what needed to be done and they did just that. I think overall the process was easy and they were good to deal with. They did what we needed from them and we are happy with the results. Only minor issues, but I guess that comes with hiring outsources, is that nothing beyond was done. There were still some fairly obvious issues, but since it lied outside of their specs they didn't fix that. Take that as a good or bad thing.
Pros :
  • Easy to work with and to integrate with the team.
  • Did all the stuff that was needed in the time said,.
Cons :
  • Did what we said and nothing more. Would have been nice with also suggesting other fixes, etc.

We worked together on creating characters, environment and animations in 2020-2021 for a mobile game (under NDA). We saw their portfolio and it perfectly matched our project as we had very specific requirements. We were convinced they would be ideal partners to work with - so we hired them. Their rapidness without compromising on the quality was amazing. They were easy to work and communicate with. They shared updates from time to time in slack. The workflow was pretty well defined. They produced amazing 2D art and went beyond our expectations.

Moonmana Games Executive Interview

Iana Tkachenko
Iana Tkachenko
Co-Founder & COO, Moonmana Games
Kindly share your feedback on how GoodFirms has been doing so far in increasing your visibility among potential clients.
GoodFirms helps us to generate new business opportunities which leads to successful long-lasting client relationships and delivery of outstanding games.
Please introduce your company and give a brief about your role within the organization.
This is Iana Tkachenko, the Co-Founder & COO of Moonmana, a reputable European Game Development and Art Production Studio creating the highest quality games for international clients.

Over the past 14+ years, the company has successfully developed games for top industry leaders like Warner Brothers, Glu Mobile (parent company EA), Azerion, Saber Interactive (parent company Embracer Group), Laguna Games, Rollic (parent company Zynga), Gameforge, Ruby Games (parent company Rovio), and many more.

Moonmana is honored to be chosen as a long-term partner among Forbes TOP 13 List of the most valuable video game companies.

Moonmana strives to achieve sustainable growth with a pool of 70+ full-time employees, a global presence in over 6+ countries, and 70+ successful projects.
What is the story behind starting this company?
Moonmana was founded in 2008 by two young and devoted people passionate about games - Artyom Shpytiak and me, Iana Tkachenko.  It was a dream come true. As in perfect synergy, we combined our efforts, experience, and knowledge and built a successful company that has been developing high-quality games for more than 14 years.

By the time Artyom decided to establish Moonmana, he had been an experienced software developer, but game development was his true passion. So he started his journey as an indie developer creating games on his own and then founded a company that is still growing. Moonmana’s first successful game was our own IP Pirates of Everseas which earned $2 million. That was the turning point for the company.

Artyom is in charge of the company’s strategy and production departments, while my responsibility is the company's growth and customer success.
What is your company’s business model – in-house team or third-party vendors/outsourcing?
Moonmana works according to the business models of outsourcing and outstaffing. 
Outsourcing is a type of game development where a client hires another company for the development of certain tasks or the whole project scope: from planning to development and testing.
 
Outstaffing means hiring experienced professionals to work on the project under management of the client side.

Moonmana has offices in Poland and Spain. Our distributed team works from 7 countries: Spain, Poland, Italy, Cyprus, Turkey, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan. Overall, we have 70+ talented full-time employees.
How does your company differentiate itself from the competition?

  • High standards of project management and on-time delivery. We ensure the efficient working process and seamless delivery management necessary to provide top-notch game development services to our clients.
What industries do you generally cater to? Are your customers repetitive? If yes, what ratio of clients has been repetitive to you?
Among our clients, there are game publishers which hire us for certain services and game studios similar to us so we work on projects jointly.

  • QA.
We create games of various genres and for different platforms: iOS, Android, PC (Steam), XBOX, Playstation, and Nintendo.
What is your customer satisfaction rate according to you? What steps do you take to cater to your customer’s needs and requirements?
We are devoted to every project we work on, we go the extra mile to create really great games - with astonishing art, smooth gameplay, and regular updates.

The key to customer satisfaction is a clear understanding of the client's needs. For this, we follow a certain pattern in terms of the working process. Before we start the project, we hold meetings with leads, PMs, and a client to clarify all details and get a complete picture of the project. The next step is forming an estimate with a description of all the stages. Throughout the working process, we also organize daily or weekly meet-ups to obtain and analyze feedback.
What kind of support system do you offer to your clients for catering to their queries and issues?
We keep in touch with clients all the time throughout the whole working process. Apart from internal daily and weekly stand-ups, we have regular calls with clients, too. This is necessary for receiving feedback and providing a result that meets all the client's requirements and expectations. We also discuss our customers’ future plans to get ready for their upcoming projects.
What kind of payment structure do you follow to bill your clients? Is it Pay per Feature, Fixed Cost, Pay per Milestone (could be in phases, months, versions, etc.)
We follow various payment structures so each client can choose the interaction model that suits their needs and requirements best. Pay per Feature, Fixed Price, and Pay per Milestone are all available with us. Sometimes we practice mixing several models - it’s up to the client. We want to be flexible and achieve a mutually beneficial outcome.
Do you take in projects which meet your basic budget requirement? If yes, what is the minimum requirement? If no, on what minimum budget you have worked for?
We take in game development projects from $10,000. The cost always depends on several key factors such as the art style, genre, desired features, the number of specialists involved in the project, the customer’s requirements in terms of timing, and so on.
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2021?
In 2021 we worked on projects ranging from $10,000 to $500,000.
Where do you see your company in the next 10 years?
In the next 10 years, I believe Moonmana will get listed among the TOP worldwide game development companies. We are eager to participate in the development of the best-in-class AAA games. We plan to expand the range of our long-term partners and keep attracting more highly-skilled and talented experts to the team.
