Perilune is a Finnish company located in Kotka. Perilune was founded in 2013 as an independent, privately held software company focusing mainly on entertainment applications for mobile platforms like Android and iPhone. We thrive to make our apps fun and accessible. We pay extra attention in making our products fast and easy to use.


Early history

Two of the founders, Mika Koivistoinen and Jarno Niemelä have been friends since 2003 when they were studying an engineering degree at the Kymenlaakso University of Applied Sciences. In 2012 Mika and Jarno were working together at a local technology company developing and selling a home security product. When they reviewed their skill set they came to the conclusion that they could create a video game. Jarno had previous experience creating mobile apps so they decided to test if they could create a simple game for Android phones since they both happened to own one. The prototypes were successful and fun to make but they also needed a graphics artists. Jarno's brother-in-law Jarkko Paldán had experience in graphic design and so the team was complete.

In early summer of 2013 the game creation hobby had reached to a point where the team were thinking that why should they create games solely for themselves since publishing them globally for everyone is relatively easy thanks to hugely popular mobile market places, and so the company was established.

First steps

A year after the founding of the company Aleksi Uusitalo offered to help with the financial side of the business since he had years of experience on entrepreneurship. The team welcomed a new member and not long after in early 2015 Perilune released its first game to the public called Kymi Kayaking.
