About the developer:
Noam Matan Rotem was serving as a detective in the military army of Israel when the idea of "Forgiveness" came to his mind: during his duty, he often had to think outside the box to solve cases. When he went back home at the end of his service after three years, he spent another one to develop the game all by himself.
