THE TEAM

We want to work with cities, corporates and communities that are in the game of fighting child obesity and promoting child health and wellbeing.  
We want to make a difference and give parents a tool that can reward screen time, maybe even be educational.
We want to develop not only one game, but a whole suite of motion games, theme parks and content for kids to be creative with.
We want to empower kids to build their own 3D universe in a park, share it with friends and family while promoting a healthy lifestyle.
