“At Mercury Active we strive for the highest artistic standards in all our games. In searching for an audio provider, we wanted someone who could match the high standards of our artwork and enhance the user experience. For the past year we’ve been working exclusively with Glebe Avenue Music on all our projects. It’s amazing how they hit the mark so consistently and quickly. Even in development, when we may listen to a track dozens of times, their music remains delightful. These guys rock!”
