About Pomsky Games
Pomsky Games is a small and independent game development studio based in Toronto, Canada. We make mobile games that address important social issues like environment pollution, mental health, inclusion etc.
Focus on Environment. We challenge the established game design practices of portraying the environment as something we could endlessly consume.
Collaboration. We create game mechanics that motivate players to collaborate rather than compete by offering them common goals to reach.
Zero violence. You would not be able to kill live beings in our games, but you would help and rescue; there is no animal abuse in anything we create.
Advocate for ethical lifestyle. We strive to communicate meaningful messages in our games that show players the importance of treating each other and the planet with care.
We are a crew of developers passionate about both the environment and video games. As people who want to make a difference, we couldn't ignore the ecological disaster that we are all witnessing nowadays, and we figured why not to raise those issues in our games? We believe we could make a difference offering to the market ethical and enjoyable games to play!
