The team at Noodlecake is quite a melting pot of personalities. Our backstories are almost as varied as the kids from Breakfast Club but there is one underlying thing that brings everyone at Noodlecake together. Our love for games.
Being located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (Sask – At – Chew – Wan) a.k.a. the middle of nowhere Canada, making games for a living was never really on our radars. Sure Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver were hot beds of game development, but that big patch of barren land in the middle of the country, who would ever make games there?
Well we did. When Apple introduced the iPhone and the App Store ecosystem everything changed. Suddenly we didn’t need to be part of a giant team making the next Grand Theft Auto. Instead we could just be a small group of friends making something fun and that is exactly what we did.
Our first real taste of success on the App Store came with our Stickman Golf® and Super Stickman Golf® games. Just simple fun games that focused on what we value and love about games. That lead to the formation of Noodlecake as a real gaming company and we haven’t had a chance to look back since.
Eventually things changed for us when we decided to port some titles to the Google Play market and dip our toes into Android development. The TL;DR version of this story allowed us to work with some amazing indie devs and help them port their games. Through that we built a publishing company to go alongside our ongoing game development.
Today our team continues to grow and we get to partner with amazing devs from all over the world. We release on all sorts of platforms, work with all kind of games and provide a ton of services we never expected. It has been one hell of ride so far with no signs of stopping.
But through all that, one thing never changed, nor will it ever. We love games.
