Meet Soba

People have been playing video games for ages. They’ve seen it all at this point – from MMOs to FPS. But what the vast majority of gamers have yet to do is make their own game.

Enter Soba, an innovative online multiplayer gaming platform that transcends the limits of creativity and inclusivity. Equipped with groundbreaking, no-code tools for game creation, Soba empowers everyone to morph into both a gamer and a creator right from their mobile devices.

It’s the brainchild of co-founders Juha Paananen and Florian Odronitz. Their idea comprised a reality where everyone can create their own 3D mobile game from scratch.

Soba is nurturing a community a community of creators. It’s a platform that inspires users to challenge the status quo, innovate, and most importantly, abide by their own rules.

The Inception

Soba was established in 2022 by two experienced, repeat founders, Juha Panaanen and Florian Odronitz, who shared an inspiring dream of making the gaming world accessible to all. Fueled by their shared passion for innovation and gaming, they successfully attracted $13.6 million in seed funding.

This financial backing, received from Lightspeed Venture Partners, Cherry Ventures, Point Nine Capital, and TQ Ventures, propelled the development of the Soba platform.

Today, Soba is available on iOS and Android platforms, capable of reaching millions of users globally with the joy of gaming and game creation.

The Vision

Soba operates on a belief system where playing and creating games is seen as a potent medium for self-expression, fostering connections and mental expansion.

The company’s mission is to democratize gaming, making it accessible to all, regardless of background or technical expertise.

“When I first got into coding, all I wanted to do was make games. It was tough, and honestly, I wasn’t great at it. But seeing my first game – a 3D Tetris with super tricky controls – come to life was such a proud moment. Fast forward, and games aren’t just a hobby anymore; I started my own mobile game studio and invested in other gaming projects. It’s wild to think over 3 billion people are gaming, but only a few of us get to actually build these games. It’s super important for us that more people get the chance to create games and that’s why we created Soba.” – Juha Paananen, CEO of Soba Studios

Soba is dedicated to empowering individuals to unleash and share their creativity with the world, creating a positive impact, and advocating for diversity in the gaming industry.

No Coding Skills Needed

Lack of coding knowledge? That’s not a problem.

Soba doesn’t require its users to have coding skills to make games. The times when becoming an expert coder was a prerequisite for game creation are over. With Soba, all that’s needed is a phone and a vision.
