Description

Rikodu is an independent games studio from Cluj-Napoca, in the heart of Transylvania. We focus on fun in our games, that pure joy of play that makes old classics enjoyable today, and we strive to create delightful experiences.

History

Inception

Rikodu started when Alexandru Palade decided to leave behind his corporate career and 10 years of working on business software to pursue his passion of making games. The first days of Rikodu were going to be experimenting with different game concepts and looking for a great team.

Second Hand

Rikodu's current working concept was born during the 35th edition of Ludum Dare. Alex found the team he was looking for and together with Radu Cristea, Ovidiu Mantoc, Gabriel Tanko and Nikolaos Chatzigeorgiadis spent 72 hours creating a playable prototype of Second Hand: Frankie's Revenge. The game received great reviews and ranked #87 for Fun and #101 for Innovation out of a total of 2,700 entries. The team liked the idea so much that they decided to take it further. Rikodu is now hard at work getting Second Hand ready for Steam Greenlight.
