Serellan was setup by a veteran group of games developers with triple A title experience, working on titles such as Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon, SOCOM and Halo Reach. Christian Allen then launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the development of Project Takedown. The Project reached it's goal of $200,000, however a teaming up with game publishers 505 Games has helped get Takedown Red Sabre finished and with a digital distribution deal to boot. If you would like to get a better feel for who Serellan are and what they are about, head over to their Company Values page. Below is a few of the devs and the games they have worked on. For a more detailed look at the entire team head to the staff page at the official Serellan site.
