    History

    Early history

    In 2015, Oskari Liukku, Max Samarin and Miika Kanerva were attending game jams and other games competitions. For Ludum Dare 34 (an online game jam), they submitted Trimmer Tycoon, a beard trimming tycoon game made in Unity. The game got a good reception in the competition, and prompted the group to continue working on the game. A few months later, the game had more features and was put on Steam Greenlight, where fans would decide if it would make it onto Steam. In a few weeks, the game had made it through, and work on it continued. Two more friends, Jussi Joki and Lauri Lappalainen, and the five founded Improx Games Oy in 2016. Trimmer Tycoon was published for free on Steam in late 2016 and has since garnered over 150,000 downloads and millions of views on Youtube.

    After that

    Improx Games continued development of Trimmer Tycoon, releasing a patch bringing bugfixes and gameplay improvements, along with 3 DLC packs containing skins for the in-game characters. Together, the group has since attended numerous game jams and continued developing games as an indie company. Since 2017, Improx Games has worked on a large 3D game project, codenamed Cube, made in the Unity game engine. In early 2020, the game The Last Cube was announced, and a Steam page published.
