There may be no game more famous than Tetris, and along with that comes the game’s Russian origins. Tetris and Russia are synonymous with one another, but in a statement made today, the team at The Tetris Company want everyone to know that they firmly stand with Ukraine.
Our friends at Nintendo Life reached out to Casey Pelkey, Vice President and General Manager of The Tetris Company, to see what their stance was on the turmoil between Russia and the Ukraine. You can read Pelkey’s statement below.
I had an opportunity to discuss with Alexey about what’s happening in Ukraine during his recent visit to our offices. Needless to say, he and the rest of our family at Tetris are heartbroken. We stand with Ukraine, and remain deeply saddened by the ongoing crisis which continues to threaten the safety and well-being of its citizens.
