Gobo was founded with the aim of being a boutique developer with the premise to GO Beyond Ordinary. The studio has the strongest culture of any studio that we have ever worked at and is situated in one of the most enviable working environments in the city of Brighton & Hove. But most important of all we have a bright, cohesive, talented team.
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.
Recently Gobo has supported Avalanche Software, based in Salt Lake City USA, on Disney Infinity - a major new toy-and-video-game hybrid platform 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.
