Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to Kooapps?
A: Kooapps is an indie mobile game development studio based in the Philippines. We’re the passionate team behind the hit word puzzle game Pictoword. We’ve released more than 40 titles on the App Store and Google Play Store and have amassed more than 200 Million downloads across all stores.
Q: What kind of games do you make?
A: Currently, we make casual games meant to be enjoyed by everyone. We have word puzzle games like Pictoword, Word Tricky and Word Beach, we’ve also created a 2D racing platformer game called Pets Race, and our recent offering is a redesign of our old Pocket Family game which is now available worldwide on Google Play.
Q: One of your games, Pictoword, has been the finalist in this year’s Independent Games Festival; could you tell us something more?
A: We are very proud to be one of the finalists of this year’s Independent Games Festival. IGF is a prestigious festival, so being chosen among thousands of submissions is already a huge honor. We are always working hard to ship the best features in our games because merits like this as well as positive feedback from our users inspire and motivate us a lot. Every time we get awards and commendations, we feel like we’ve done something right, and therefore we want to do even better.
Q: Can you tell about your new game Pocket Family?
A: Pocket Family on Android is a redesign of the Pocket Family game on iOS that everyone loved. It’s a house simulation game where you create and design a house for your cute little family. We took the best parts of the original Pocket Family’s house building and character collection concept then added engaging task-based progression and challenging match puzzles. We also put a lot of effort into further improving the art. I hope everyone can try it out!
Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: We’re working on further improving our current games, as well as shipping out new ones. I hope our users can look forward to the exciting features we’re planning to roll out soon! We’re doing all of this for them!
