Corners Studio is a company setup by 4 childhood friends who grew up playing games and watching animation, particularly from Japan. They all grew up wanting to make games, with each of them honing their skills in their respective fields – music, visuals, programming and business. When the iTunes App Store opened, they recognized it as an opportunity to make their dreams of making a game by themselves a reality. With a goal to position Corners Studio as a boutique, high-quality app developer studio, the team developed their own IP, Bar Oasis. Corners Studio have so far released Bar Oasis, Bar Oasis 1.5 and Bar Oasis 2. Corners Studio is an independently owned company from Seoul, South Korea.
