Game Development, Zurich, Switzerland

The Zurich-based game studio Gbanga’s vision is to create fun, immersive digital mixed-reality games and experiences that are individually tailor-made to the players context, mood, taste and preferences.

Mixed-reality games are based on reality and the player’s situation. To achieve this, we take GPS, local weather data, open data and map data into account. With our games Gbanga Zooh and Gbanga Famiglia, we already pioneered the mixed-reality game genre in 2007. In 2018, we win the world-wide Universal GameDev Challenge.
