We all play.
From childhood, and continuing as we grow, we play games to connect with others, training our imaginations to dream and create. And, the impact goes far beyond ourselves — games can be a powerful force for good.
Soba is a place where you can be yourself. A place that’s positive, without all of the outdated, boring gamer cliches and toxic, negative stereotypes. We designed a safe, fun destination for every gamer to express themselves. Every day, our passion is fueled by Soba’s dynamic community of creators.
Soba solves a universal need. As more of our lives happen online, we need better ways to create, together. Soba lets gamers showcase their personalities and share their stories - bringing unique, authentic self-expression to the virtual world.
Come in to explore, stay to create. Every gamer is a creator.
We’re a small group of talented engineers, artists, designers with a mission of making the world's largest medium, games, accessible for everyone. We believe a small team can make a big difference.
We’re founded by successful, repeat entrepreneurs and funded by top VCs in addition to founders and executives of world-leading game companies.
