About Us

Iperurania Arts logo

We’re Iperurania Arts, a small Italian team of two game developers and a cat: Federico Mercurio, Giulia Mariella and Jones. Now we’re working on Beyond the Sky, our biggest and most important project. Our goal is to make intriguing and good-looking games, fun to play and with a unique style.

First of all, we’re lovers of games, music, movies, literature and art and we’d like to show this in our creations. We’re inspired by classics and masters of videogames (i.e. Double Fine games and LucasArts adventures) and by the dark and gothic tones of Tim Burton’s and Guillermo del Toro’s cinema or by movies like Bram Stoker’s Dracula. We’re also inspired by literature, especially by Latin and Greek classics, French chivalric romance, Italian medieval literature, Shakespeare’s works, English romanticism and the biggest contemporary authors as well as by masters of art like Caravaggio, Canova and Gustav Klimt. Our purpose is to put whatever we love in our works making something new, beautiful and engaging.

Giulia Mariella

I’m Giulia, co-founder of Iperurania Arts, co-maker of Beyond the Sky and artist of the team. My tasks include whatever regards graphics, from character design to animations. In short everything you’ll see in the game – characters, places, animals and so on – has been hand-drawn by me.

Federico Mercurio

Co-founder of Iperurania Arts along with Giulia, I’ve always had a passion for toys and games, either board games or videogames, as well as for computer programming for entertainment. I’m the game designer, writer and programmer of Beyond the Sky.


Jones is 5, is a cat and is a vital member of the team. His tasks include reminding us to take a break and eat, alleviating our stress and covering all team members of scratches. He takes his chores very seriously!
