As per a Press Release, Cali4ways Games, local independent video game developers, have announced the grand opening of their “Real Life Permanent” studio, nestled in the media hub of Johannesburg, more specifically, “Fourways Adjacent Randburg”.
The CEO of Cali4ways Games “apparently” Louis Du Pisani, explained in a humours quote that:
