Tiny Colossus is essentially Ciro Continisio, a one-man team devoted to make games that are not necessarily big - but surely great. To start tiny is better than not starting at all.
HistoryHow everything came to be
At the beginning of 2010, game designer and programmer Ciro Continisio and composer Francesco D'Andrea joined forces to create a small and agile team to work on a sequel to U.F.H.O., a web game Continisio created in 2008 when he was working at Visual Creative Studio. While working on the sequel, called "UFHO: Space Academy", the duo developed their first game "Ticketless", a pixelated endless runner launched in August and sponsored by the Flash publisher Gimme5Games. Soon after, Ciro was hired by EA Madrid as a tester so development on UFHO: Space Academy came to an halt.UFHO2
After a successful Kickstarter campaign in early 2012, Ciro started working on the real thing, now called UFHO2. Development slowed down during the following year but was eventually resumed, and the game completed in early 2014. UFHO2 is now available on iOS, Android, Humble Store and recently for Steam, following the successful Greenlight in early 2015.In development
Ciro is now working with ex-colleague Ennio Pirolo on a new game called FATAL ERROR, a local multiplayer shooter in development for PCs and scheduled for a release on Steam in summer 2015.
