About Us

Jackdaw Interactive is a one-man developer studio run by Fredrik "Eagle" Larsson. Fredrik Larsson has been making games since 1998 on multiple platforms. The website was created in 2004 and has since gone through four redesigns.

Prior to 2010, the studio went by the far less serious "Tarana Software" name - as you might discover if you play any of the games made prior to the name change.
