Description

Game Oven is the studio Fingle, Bam fu, Friendstrap and Bounden. Formerly based in Utrecht, the Netherlands, they were three people that make games with new, weird and unique ways for people to interact with each other. As of April, Game Oven shut doors.

History

Pre- Game Oven

Bojan Endrovski and Adriaan de Jongh first worked together during a student project in 2010. With only 6 months of development time, they created the fully featured lobby-game The Jelly Reef for the Microsoft Surface. In 2011, Adriaan graduates on several prototypes for 'games that go beyond the screen,' one of them being the prototype for Game Oven's first game, Fingle.

Game Oven's first game: Fingle

Even though Bojan was still required to write a master thesis, he and Adriaan decide to develop Fingle for iOS in Bojan's multi-platform game engine. Fingle was built with the help of friends to create the art, music, video's and press releases. After releasing the premium version of Fingle in January 2012, they continued working on updates and a free version of Fingle, which appeared on the App Store in December 2012.

Recent

As a final act, Game Oven releases Jelly Reef for iOS and Android on April 29th.
