About the creators
Piotr Hoang is a Y Combinator (YC S19) founder and mobile game developer. In 2020, he decided to build a product that would connect people offline and enter a fast-growing $9.3 billion tabletop games market. He and his wife Kim Anh came up with the idea to create a game combining 2 of their favourite themes: sci-fi and puppies.

Cyberpunk universe
Being part of the tech startup community, Piotr felt the need to create something that portrays tech advancement in a more optimistic light and chose the Cyberpunk genre. While Cyberpunk itself usually explores darker and serious themes, there is a cool spark to it that is attractive and formed big fanbase communities (Blade Runner, Cyberpunk 2077, Snow Crash, Akira, Deus Ex, Westworld). He hopes Alien Puppies will make Cyberpunk more relatable to kids and youth with a more light-hearted theme - Cyber Pups!

Kim Anh is behind many of the design concepts and loves to imagine how the universe would be ruled by these cute futuristic puppies. Each puppy character with the corresponding powers and details hidden in the cards has a story that tells you more about the universe where dogs are the primary intelligent species and exist across the galaxies with super abilities. The world they live in is advanced technologically, with possibilities of interstellar travel.
