Abyte Entertainment is an indie game studio founded by Giulio Marra and Federico Palombini, two Italian developers with more than 10 years of experience in business projects, from web to e-commerce platforms, more than 5 years in the gaming industry and more than 35 years as gamers.

Everything began in 2006, the very first concept of an haggling engine came out as a university paper showing that negotiation can be engaging also in videogames. It was good at that time but not something that could be really called “a game”. The indie game scene was not that good at that moment and the best and most logical thing to do for them was to follow other choices regarding their first job. It was a safer option but you can’t ignore your true passion forever.

In 2016, after 10 years of professional and challenging IT projects in major companies (while doing personal side jobs developing basic prototypes and mini games), they decided to capitalize their experience and follow the path of designing and developing a videogame. That old concept came back together with a modern game design heavily inspired by the great indie game “Papers, Please” and a game setting that recalls many TV shows about pawn shops, auctions and negotiation in general. That’s how Dealer’s Life was born, a game where procedural generation meets behavioural simulation!

In 2019 they started working on Dealer’s Life 2 to improve the concept and make it even better, from amazing new graphics to dozens of new features.

They are currently working on Dealer’s Life Legend, a fantasy installment of your favorite haggling tycoon phenomenon Dealer’s Life!
