What are others saying about it?

“I played it several times. In the Start Up, it was 'quite easy', for the other companies, even with more budget it's much more complex. I really like it and recommended my colleagues for a playful introduction to DevOps”

~ Arne Rossmann - Head of AI Engineering ~ Germany

“Love this game from the team at Mech Rock. A lot of subtle education going on in the best way possible. I think these types of ideas have a lot of potential.“
