Shakshuka Games is a game studio devoted to making games that matter. We focus on educational gaming with games related to science and to financial literacy. We are data driven. Our games are designed to be fun and to have measurable social impact. We work with the best professionals, both those with careers in gaming and those coming from elsewhere. We work with artists, programmers and sound designers to make sure that the games are fun, and we also work with statisticians, educators, economists and other professionals to make sure we aren’t just building toys. We are building games that matter.
