Description

KnapNok Games has experience with developing games for social and physical digital game platforms such as: Nintendo Wii and Wii U, Microsoft Xbox Kinect, smartphones, and PC. Since its existence, Knapnok Games has worked on developing games for new interfaces. They haven’t settled for one genre or platform but rather made an effort of exploring the potential of new and novel interfaces. Examples of their developed games are: award winning party game B.U.T.T.O.N. for Steam and XBLIG, WiiWare game Paint Plash, Kinect demo Slowmo Showdown, eShop Wii U game Spin the Bottle, etc. Knapnok Games’ vision is to establish itself as a small innovative studio expert in creating rich and engaging games for new and nontraditional interfaces and input devices. The team recognizes large market potential for physical digital games designed for social contexts that makes the players the center of attention rather than the TV screen. Therefore, they are continuously experimenting and iterating on multiple interaction and gameplay approaches for physical interfaces.

History

The core team of KnapNok Games are also members of the “creative hub” and an award-winning game design collective by the name Copenhagen Game Collective. The idea of the creative hub involves building an organization capable of collaborating with a vast number of talented external partners on exciting novel projects. The collective is a tight network of different companies, non-commercial projects, and creative individuals, which all enjoy the synergy, inspiration and potential attention of working in something “more” than a company. Occasionally, we also contribute to the collective blog.
