Gobo was founded as a boutique developer with the premise to GO Beyond Ordinary. So far we have been lucky enough to work with some amazing development teams and help augment their teams with our hugely talented people here at Gobo. We’ve been trusted with responsibility for full development of headline features by our partners – we’re proud that our partners can see and trust our total devotion to quality and excellence.
Gobo has supported Avalanche Software, based in Salt Lake City USA, on Disney Infinity – a major toys-to-life game from Disney Interactive which launched in August 2013. We were responsible for the Pirates of the Caribbean play set which is one of the three launch playsets for the platform – a major, headline, front-of-box feature. We have just completed development on the Guardians of the Galaxy playset for Disney Infinity 2.0.
