The team behind Qasir's development and publishing.

Aduge Studio was a dev team from Curitiba – Brazil, formed by 6 friends. They united under the common goal of pushing the boundaries of game expression, inviting players to tap into the potential of videogames as medium for self-reflection. Qasir al-Wasat was their first major release and went to become an award-winning hidden gem.

Of the original team, some reunited to work on Qasir al-Wasat’s International Edition while others went on to work in different projects. The returning team is now releasing the game under our newly created publishing label, Zueira Digital.
