We are a digital design studio creating games and apps intended to engage, educate, and inspire a global audience in ways previously not thought possible.


We love games.
We believe games can do more.

This is why we have developed an entirely new approach to game design...

Our Mission

Our mission is to disrupt industry norms in both gaming and education by successfully integrating innovative gameplay, higher-value monetization, and progressive frameworks that promote independent learning. We call this integrative approach "Wisdom through Play" and it is grounded in 3 core commitments:

  1. Design games we want to play, love to play, and can’t wait for you to play. We are designing games that compete successfully with today’s most popular games for both time and attention. We feature the world’s most innovative gameplay mechanics and state-of-the-art engagement models.
  2. Create immersive experiences that embed meaningful “narrative curricula” related to the humanities and STEAM education. In-game achievements and upgrades are monetized to motivate self-directed learning and social-sector impact in the real world.
  3. Provide transformational moments where players discover new contexts for their experience of life and for the difference they can make in life. With both direct and tangential learning elements, players are drawn to an exploration of the deeper connections between all of us and our world.

oneNova

Our flagship gaming initiative is a free-to-play mobile franchise that takes players on the action-packed journey of Nova and the EleMentals: a lovable and relatable team birthed by the Big Bang and tasked with the responsibility of creating the ideal conditions on Earth for life to emerge, evolve, and awaken to its full potential.
