In an interview with Bloomberg, Palworld creator Takuro Mizobe has expressed that Pocket Pair wants to remain a small studio. He has no interest in expanding out like most executives would after an unprecedented amount of success. Additionally, the studio wants to continue focusing on brewing smaller projects instead of delving into AAA ones.

Palworld Captures The Essence Of What A Fun Multiplayer Survival Should Be

The RPG came out as a sudden surprise for gamers, but even more surprising was the universal acclaim it witnessed in a matter of a few days. It features a highly addictive multiplayer experience that is best played with a bunch of friends. The entry has sold over 8 million copies, and the active player count on Steam has skyrocketed a few times so far.

Games are most fun when playing with friends. A game without a multiplayer mode just doesn’t feel right in the era we live today.”

Palworld is a perfect blend of cuteness and a gritty reality.
