About Breakfirst Games :


Breakfirst is a company created 10 years ago with the objective of developing games accessible to non-gaming audiences, especially families. The first 7 years were dedicated to the development of technology and games controllable by motion using the camera present on phones and tablets. With the arrival of the Nintendo Switch in 2018, the development focus shifted to this console using the accelerometers and gyroscope in controllers. Four games were launched on this consumer console, including the "INSTANT SPORTS" franchise; a simple concept bringing together several sports playable with motion and aimed at the whole family.
