Minneapolis Dev Shop Breaks Ground on Mobile Gaming Space

Northeast Minneapolis-based  software developer  Bust Out Solutions recently announced the release of their first mobile game, Brahmageddon.  The foray represents something bigger for the 14 person firm looking to explore greater opportunities in the space under the brand name ‘Bust Out Games’.
