"Provided you have some fun people at the table, this game is an absolute blast to play. The emphasis on the interactions that players must have, and the talks that these interactions provide are amazing, and they are, in my opinion, the staple on which this game was designed."

-Daniel Andercău, Facebook review

"I highly recommend this game, and my only criticism is that I want more of it. I look forward to any expansions they might release!"

- Patrik Lasota, Facebook review

Zestrea is published by Pronoia AB, a Swedish based cross media company that brings utopias to life.

The word "pronoia" means the opposite of paranoia - the belief that the Universe and everything conspires for one's good. This is the why of this company, and Zestrea fits perfectly because the game is a covert utopia. 

Pronoia AB is founded by Laura Bularca, one of the four Zestrea team members. Currently, the company is a one man show. In addition to Zestrea, Pronoia AB also publishes the fairly tale inspired comic book about burnout, The Lost Sunday, and the video game about a magical comic book library, Lost Sunday Comics.

Stay tuned for more utopias!
