Safe planes and good whisky.

That’s what I’ll always think of first whenever I write about Hong Kong-based studio Four Fats.

When writing this piece about the team morphing from Mooff Games into Four Fats, I somehow ended up coining a salutation that I actually now use in day to day life, obviously meant in the same spirit as may the wind be always at your back and the Sun on your face. Unfortunately, the line that inspired the headline to that piece, concerning Four Fats aiming to make games that weren’t shit, is no longer found on the studio’s ¬†website.
