Rolling Legend – EPISODE 1


CRYsoft Development is an Italian independent game studio made up of Alessandro Filipponi, Aymen Mezni, Cristiano Ferracuti and Francesca Velenosi  bringing back old fashion new style games since 2011.


Early history

CRYsoft Development was founded in 2011 by Alessandro Filipponi and Aymen Mezni, after they encounter each other at a job interview for a totally different scope of work. They teamed up to fully develop their first game ‘Rolling Hero’. With no resources, space or money, they created iWant, eBay Hidden Auctions and myDespenza apps to earn a starting capital to buy some equipment, development licenses and software. Later in 2012 the artist Francesca Velenosi joined the crew introducing to the team his friend Cristiano Ferracuti, an incredible skilled music composer. Rolling Hero was renamed Rolling Legend – EPISODE 1 and released subsequently. Rolling Legend wasn’t an overwhelming success, but it was greatly appreciated from critics and players, but much more of that it gave great exposure over the Internet.


After Rolling Legend’s release, CRYsoft Development was approached by Neveplast srl, an italian company which build and sell particular kart racing products,  to develop their promotional game based on their brand product Skiddy. This was their first commissioned work. The team was super excited cause the chance to create a new official licensed game. The game itself was highly appreciated by Neveplast for his accessibility as his good looking so as company customers which were able to enjoy the particular Skiddy kart experience on their mobile devices. This success pushed further CRYsoft Development on their mission to develop enjoyable, beautiful looking and accessible games.


In May 2016 a new game by CRYsoft Development was launched worldwide on almost every mobile device available in the markets: MatchYS. This was the time order challenge of the team, create a game funny to play by children as do by adults. MatchYS is a fast paced puzzle game based on observation and rapid reaction skill. A collateral objective of the team was to add an “educational” aspect too using the themes of the game itself, toys and order. The expectations were help parents teach their children to be more motivated into being more responsable through the play. CRYsoft Development reached this goal receiving the Educational Badge by Google Play for MatchYS. The team is currently developing his brand new game: Space Max.
