Description

Toka Loka Games is an indie game development company of nine. We are very passionate about game development and our vision is to create high quality atmospheric games that will entertain as well as offer a memorable gaming experience.

History

Early history

Before getting together as a team, we all worked in the same company developing an MMO. Meanwhile we participated in game jams and followed closely the indie game development scene. In early 2015 we were approached by a mobile advertising company that offered us the opportunity to develop games with thoughtful attention to artistic detail. We all liked the idea of the greater creative control that comes with developing smaller games and thus we founded Toka Loka Games in May 2015.

The Bait

In order to test the waters, we decided to create a small fun game for mobile devices. We came up with a fun game mechanic (avoid the fishes while dangling from a rope) and went for it. The game (humorously named The Bait) was released in July 2015 on Google Play.

Goo Saga

While working on The Bait we also laid the foundations for another bigger project based on an early prototype that our designer had created. Goo Saga is a platform adventure game where the player guides an elastic creature which we eventually named Goo. After completing The Bait, we shifted our focus on this project and we have been working on it ever since.
