What we do 

Ululab uses its game development expertise to make a difference in children education around the world. We believe that video game is a medium that will continue to evolve significantly and that they can have a huge impact in education. Playing is learning. We strive to find what’s fun in learning and we make video games out of it. Our last titles are award winning games like Slice Fractions (Apple Best of 2014) and its sequel (App of the Day). We’re currently building a small team of 5 people in the creative city of Montreal, Canada.

How we do it

We have been able to get visibility worldwide because we apply strong game design principles in the field of kids educational apps, where real games are rare. Our current project is an ambitious service which tackles several complex subjects in primary school mathematics.
