The basic concept of Moomin Move game is to mix the real world with digitally created Moominvalley. The free-to-play and walk-to-play Android and iOS game facilitates mobile phone location positioning and it really encourages gamers to walk more. It offers Moomin fans new ways to find and interact with familiar characters.
In Moomin Move, the player moves in the real world and finds Moominvalley residents. The player must help the Moomin characters in collecting various familiar items and treasures from the Moomin stories. By helping the Moomins the player builds friendships with them. The game has been developed in collaboration with Moomin Characters Ltd and by keeping with the spirit of the original stories.
Moomin Move has been a success in its home country Finland with frequent featuring from App Stores and chart topping positions. Moomin Move is now available globally with few exceptions. Japan is the next country for Moomin Move to be released in early 2019.

We believe tomorrow’s games will be everywhere. They’ll intertwine the digital world with reality, changing how we play and live in exciting ways. Games will draw content from the real world through locations, augmented reality, social media, and the internet of things. But gamification will also change how we act in the real world.
We are a startup in the heart of Helsinki, building a platform that allows for integrating real-world actions and achievements into games. We believe this can be an entirely new way of monetizing content.
