Taking advantage of the power of GPS and a surge in location based services, all our games use physical locations as the game board and require the user to be out and about to play.
Modern smartphone user behaviour provides the platform to build highly engaging, highly retentive games at the forefront of players' minds throughout the day. We only build products for mobile devices.
Every game is based on a familiar real world concept and/or uses the real world to power the game mechanics. We don't do hourly rent collections and we definitely don't do virtual worlds.
