Description

We are a small mobile focused development team based in Barcelona, delivering high quality aesthetic games and original concepts to a midcore audience.

History

Early history

The Eighties. A ZX Spectrum and two guys. They were brothers. The older, loves programming in BASIC, and in order not to be disturbed by the younger one, while he’s highly concentrated trying to get something moving on the screen, gives him a sheet of paper and a pencil. -Take it - he says -draw a dragon filling up the squares and I’ll put it in the game. Dabadu Games had just borned, but none of them knew it yet.

Thirty years later these two brothers, with a professional background in programming and user experience, decided to bring back dragons to life again.

After that

The first big opportunity arrived when Núria Trigueros, an educator interested in the great possibilities of videogames as a learning resource, joined the project. From this collaboration two educational games for kids were released: GardenLab and DisMonster. They were awarded twice in the International Festival “El Chupete” and achieved a lot of amazing positive reviews from the specialized press. Moreover, DisMonster has been featured in USA AppStore during several months (among other 156 countries).

Just now

While Núria is taking a break, in order to go further in her educational career, the two brothers, with the confidence given by the two released games and the support of a new partnership focused in business development, Ricard Antonijoan, begins the assault to make free to play games for all audiences. The first one, published in January 2018 by Noodlecake and called "It's Full of sparks", get featured by the App Store worldwide with more than 4.5 million downloads. Now, we are developing two more games: "Space Egg Ships" and "Giant Dancing Plushies."
