FRACTiLE Games is an independent one-man game developer based in Tampere, Finland. The name of that man is Mikko Rytkönen.
FRACTiLE, as it was called back then, was formed in summer 1996 as a small group of people developing PC games at their spare time. The name of the group was later changed to FRACTiLE Games. The group has long since shrunken to just one person. I decided to keep using the name with my hobby game projects, because it has such a long history and more or less positive "brand image".
