Shin, Min Gyun, the partner of the K Cube Ventures who attracted this investment, said, “Play Hard is a team with excellent balance between unconventional, indie specific initiative, and popular excitement.” He added, “I hope Play Hard will grow as a game company that is globally recognized for its own characteristics distinctive from the major genres launched in the conventional market”.
