Immortal empires was certainly a cool project, so congrats on the release of that one.

While I have already dropped you an e-mail, it’s always good to know if studios like ours are OK to reach out as well. Your post sort of implies it based on the remote work being OK, but at the same time it has the tone of looking to expand your internal team.

Anyway, long story short is hopefully you’re open to studios covering this need as well as possible individuals!
