About Soba

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 A place that’s positive, without all of the outdated, boring gamer cliches and toxic, negative stereotypes.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.
