Our Mission

Educate, Engage, Entertain

Do you remember the most amazing teacher you’ve ever had? We do. Our best educators and professors made us excited about learning, want to ask more and created those “lightbulb” moments of clarity where information turns into knowledge. Our mission is to replicate and scale this excitement and these “lightbulb” moments through the power of engagement and the tools of the entertainment world -- games, animation, movies and more.


Games, Simulations, Virtual Reality and Animation

We create immersive educational games, interactive simulations and e-books, augmented and virtual reality apps and live action and animated movies. Our products have been proven effective in teaching crucial skills that improve field performance in high stakes environments (for example intelligence field agents, military fighter pilots, etc.) because we have the ability to translate educational objectives into a compelling story and effective game design / mechanics and creating the entertainment factor that will engage children and adults in learning as a process of self-discovery.
