"It's been 111 days since the war broke into our home, changing everything and everyone around. GSC Game World is a Ukrainian company, so our story is alike.

"We not only continued our work, we became volunteers as well. Many of our colleagues joined the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

"This is just a small fraction of our story. Many of our colleagues are currently unable to publicly share their experiences due to safety concerns."
