ABOUT GG LAB

“Creativity is intelligence having fun.” ~ Albert Einstein

We’re a group of freelance indie developers located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, operating as GooGoo Lab since 2014.  We’re committed to developing small games that make a big impact.

We started making games after (as a family) playing games together for years, it was the next natural step.

Our idea of a good game involves consistent challenges, fun story-lines, memorable moments, interesting choices and a sense of overall cohesion.

GooGoo Lab started out with the development of toddler apps to help children with early reading, maths and hand-eye coordination. We continue to maintain the development of (free-to-download) toddler apps by creating games that stimulate young minds and encourage the early stages of problem solving in children. We enjoy the development of these early educational games to assist parents with their child’s learning while they engage in fun activities together.  Receiving thankful emails from parents who claim their child learned from our games has only further inspired us.

We’ve also moved onto developing other games for ages 10 to adult. Games like Obstacle racing and Idle Colony.

Our workplace is a dynamic collaborative environment that encourages ​out-of-the-box thinking​​. We strive to support each other’s strengths and cultivate creativity. We use the Unity Engine to develop attractive 2D/3D games/apps.

FEATURED PROJECT

A twist on old-school Brick Breaker

Brick Miner, this unusual take on Brick-Breaker has you upgrading your paddle by collecting minerals from the jagged bricks that hang above each new stage. As you get through the stages you can upgrade not only your paddle but your throwing rock as well. Take on the challenge and ‘mine’ your skills.
