Our history has begun in November of the 2014th when three young people who never developed games, and even were unfamiliar with each other has decided to participate in their first hackathon. We called our team "Theytakingahobbitstoizenhard" because we are nerds and for one night made the first prototype of the black and white platformer.
It was a great experience for us and we got a lot of fun. But even more we, had pleased when our friends have played the game and they really liked it! It has given to us the confidence to continue developing. That's how OVIVO was born.
We decided to reduce the ridiculous name of our team to more laconic - IzHard. But we didn't know what to do next: we had neither experience, nor money, nor any representations about game developing. So we have decided to test our good luck and take a part in the international competition Imagine Cup by Microsoft where the first prize was a grant for development of a project. Then we couldn't even imagine that in half-year we will become the winners of Imagine Cup of the 2015th.
Thanks to this victory, IzHard became a studio and development of OVIVO became her main objective. And we got the chance to make a dream game.
