About

We make games with thoughtful, compelling stories at their core

At Wooga, we want to create joyful experiences that awaken our players’ desire to see what happens next. We want to provide a place for them to become part of exciting worlds and touch their hearts with our stories, in which their actions drive the stories forward. We're based in the heart of Berlin, where about 200 employees from around the world work together to create high quality story-driven casual games.

We make story-driven games

Engaging stories that take you on an adventure.

At Wooga, we work to ensure that at the heart of every game we make is a gripping narrative, with relatable characters that take our players on an adventure.

Our Values

Being Accountable

We believe the best way to lead is to take ownership of success and failure. We don't see failure as the end of the world, instead we view it as something that should be communicated and learned from.

Thoughtful Communication

At Wooga, we pride ourselves on communicating clearly, carefully and bravely. This helps our game teams and internal services do their very best and act on meaningful feedback.

Being Close To Our Players

Wooga's games have been played by millions of people around the world, and each has built their own unqiue experience inside the world's we have created. We endeavour to share our players excitement and listen to feedback on where we can improve.

Embracing Innovation

The casual games sector is an intensely competitive environment and we believe that the best way to set yourself apart from others is to embrace innovation. Whether it's finding new ways to tell a great story or run experiments on how to integrate ads, we're always looking to add a little something special to our games.

Sharing Knowledge

At Wooga we encourage sharing best practices and have numerous internal events to ensure knowledge is shared and adopted; from 5 minutes of fame presentations and weekly standups to hosting external events and brownbags.

One Company

We are lucky enough to all work under one roof in the centre of Berlin. There are no satellite offices or video calls at strange hours. That allows us to all share the same vision and help the many instead of the few.
