Welcome to the pages of the AnakreoN team.

We are a free association of people engaged in developing computer games for the PC platform. At present, we already have two successfully accomplished projects to our credit.

The freeware game Berusky (Ladybirds) that has, against all assumptions, won the hearts of many Czech gamers and the coveted recognition by gamer magazines, is our first fruit in the games domain.

The success of the game was so surprising for us that we were ready, after some time, to start working on a second part, Berusky II (Bugs Escape 3D). We tried to conceive its contents with a higher dose of professionalism laying stress on contemporary technical innovations now showing up in the games industry area, of course, with respect to the highest possible degree of game play and entertainment.

Whether or not we were successful is up to you to judge in the prepared playable demo.

The development of Berusky II swings into a stage in which we begin adding sound to the game. Therefore we have decided to provide a sample of the music that will accompany you through our new game.

What will it be like, then? You can judge for yourselves here.
