Squid – new Era of moving

By making Project Squid we are creating a new smart way of transportation that will be used by different categories of people worldwide. We believe that it will bring more sustainable development in the transportation sphere and change our life forever.

It is possible to implement the idea using technologies that we possess nowadays.  We had an ulterior motive to choose a three-wheel base.  Tricycle is the perfect chassis for the city and countryside transport, because it is compact, light and stable.  Therefore, it will have more advantages in the future development, comparing with cars and bicycles. Wide usage of the advanced technologies will transform a simple tricycle into a smart vehicle. Ii is no more a vehicle, but an extension of your body. Moreover it will cover and protect driver.

Firetail Games

Firetail Games is an independent Game Studio, trying to fill in the gaps of the mobile game industry. Do you still remember the theme from Super Mario? Do you still remember the character Crash Bandicoot? We think mobile experiences in their current form aren’t as memorable experiences as the games we used to play in our childhood.

A big amount of children and young pople are playing on mobile as their main gaming platform, and they prefer it over other systems. We want to put as much effort in all the aspects of the game as was put back in the days into games when we were young, while keeping the approachability and simplified gameplay mechanics required for mobile.
