Aquiris is a company based in Porto Alegre, Brazil. With 12 years of history and a team of 70 people, we have been creating games for a broad range of platforms, from browser to PC, consoles and mobile. Our big focus since the very beginning has been on delivering the best artistic, technical and gameplay quality to our players, in partnership with powerful publishing partners. Aquiris is known by the critically acclaimed arcade racing Horizon Chase Turbo, the fast paced FPS Ballistic Overkill, and the F2P mobile Looney Tunes - World of Mayhem.
Aquiris was founded in 2007 by Amilton Diesel, Mauricio Longoni and Israel Mendes. They teamed up to develop virtual reality and advergames in a 30 square meter office. 20 games later, they got experience to grow the company to 70 people, including three new partners: Raphael Baldi, Kely Costa and Sandro Manfredini. Today Aquiris works with its own proprietary titles and big franchises in partnership with great partners.
