Description

Dadako is an Independent Video-games Studio Based in Tokyo, Japan

History

What

"Dadakko" in Japanese means "brat". We are a plucky young company that has roots in mobile app and game development on iOS.

2010-2013

Dadako's first app "Facemakr" was released to an early iOS market, gaining much popularity for it's innovative UI and lightweight Vector engine. Facemakr was featured heavily by Apple. Facemakr HD was a day 1 launch title for the iPad, which made it to #1 paid app on the app store in several countries. Facemakr also was pre-installed to demo iPhone handsets in Apple stores in the UK and Japan, and Softbank stores in Japan. Dadako went on to develop more apps & 3rd party development during this period.

2013~

Dadako is currently developing PC & Console titles, two of which are currently in development: Pixel Pirate & Isgard.
