Our history

Colossi Games was founded in early 2020 by a trio of industry experts. CEO and co-founder, Manuel Prueter, and brother-in-law Andrey Panfilov (CPO and co-founder), came up with the idea around the dinner table. Joining forces with Anton Petrov (CTO and co-founder), they sought to plug the multiplayer survival RPG gap in the mobile market with this game. They are keen to revolutionise this area of the industry whilst running a lean team to increase efficiencies. The founders started hiring in September 2020 and have already grown their team to a total of 10 people, looking to hire more this year.

Manuel Prueter, CEO and co-founder at Colossi Games commented: “This new funding will enable us to bring the game to life in a more advanced state and create more game-changing entertainment. Bringing Lars Jörnow, Partner EQT Ventures, on board is incredibly exciting for us. He has a great track record and a huge amount of experience value add, so we cannot wait to get our teeth stuck in.”

Lars Jörnow, Partner at EQT Ventures added:

“The mobile games industry is ripe for revolution, and Colossi Games is perfectly positioned to create that disruption.
The founding team are true industry veterans who have a great track record in their respective fields. I am looking forward to joining their board and helping guide the strategy and success of the business.”
