What’s up with Odobo? Life and death of a great developer

In 2014, the company won the EGR title of Services Rising Star . In September of the same year, Odobo is nominated for the Digital Gaming Innovation at the Global Gaming Awards. In 2015, there are two more nominations and one victory in the mobile software category . Everything seemed fine. The developer regularly issued new games, and not only slots, was nominated, created its own contests, participated in exhibitions, and slowly recruited partners. But … in May 2016 it closed.

What happened to Odobo?

At some point, Odobo’s activities simply became unprofitable. This was the reason that the company was closed. According to the developer’s representatives, the costs increased at a faster rate than their business grew.

Sadly, the creator of Odobo should be calm now. On March 8 this year, Yggdrasil took the baton and announced the launch of the YGS Masters platform , which is designed to make life easier for developers. According to the director of Yggdrasil, independent developers need the support of a reputable partner with advanced technologies.

Yggdrasil at the moment is one of the most promising, in my opinion, developers. If he already took up this business, I think he will do everything properly. Only invited studios will be able to use the platform, plus quality control must be strict. So the expectations are high. For now, we are just waiting for news about the first partners and the first games.


Perhaps someone remembers the Odobo games, played them. You can leave your opinion about this company in the comments.
