After two years of hard work, we are proud to announce the launch of a baby elephant!

Our client for this project is PEGI (Pan-European Game Information). PEGI is an age rating system, established to help European parents get informed when buying a computer or a console game. Launched in 2003 PEGI represents unified age rating system used throughout Europe. The system is supported by the major console manufacturers, including Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo, as well as by publishers and developers of interactive games throughout Europe.

More than ten backend developers and two designers from Vox Teneo were involved in the development of the platform. The teams that worked on the platform are located in Brussels, Skopje and Bitola. Thank you all for the sleepless nights and efforts, you make Vox Teneo a wonderful place to work! The total count of days spent on the project is more than 2200.

The new age rating system is developed by VoxTeneo, using Laravel. The logic behind the rating includes different criteria and calculation, after which the final rating of the game is published. Rating needs to be submitted and reviewed by official publishers and examiners, both part of the rating system.

We have also develop the public website of PEGI, which is Drupal based instance.
