Incuvo is an innovative mobile game development start up created in 2011 by Wojciech Borczyk (Incuvo’s CEO, PhD in Computer Science) and Jakub Duda. Incuvo is currently based in Katowice, Poland. The company’s co-founders has been working together in game industry since 2005 and have previously created, successfully bootstrapped and sold gaming start up to City Interactive, Poland’s leading game developer and publisher. For City Interactive they built a studio of 40 people and released 15+ console titles (Nintendo DS, Wii, PS3, X360 and PC). But at one point they’ve decided to get back to their indie (a short form of "independent") roots and start a new company - Incuvo. This is how Incuvo’s flagship project Createrria was born. Createrria is a quick and easy to use platform for creating, sharing and playing games that turns making games into a game. It is targeted at gamers, not developers. Our users can create games with just a few taps without any programming skills, share them with friends or simply play other people creations. After successful soft launch in Canada and Australia, Createrria has been released worldwide.
