Our Story

The Gamoteca platform was launched with the aim of using mobile devices to simulate real-life environments in training. Developed in coordination with the United Nations, it was originally designed for ‘serious games’ and simulation exercises in crisis response training.
 
Since then we have supported a range of clients in the private, non-profit and academic sectors. We have worked with partners to create human-connected, game-based learning experiences on job coaching, workplace mentoring, onboarding, communication skills and design thinking.
