OLO began life as part of Sennep‘s ongoing R&D investigations into coded animation.
Spotting it’s potential as a game, perfect for touch devices, we developed it into a HTML5 web app that immediately caught the imagination of over 50,000 online players. This encouraged us to design a polished evolution of the game and the result has been an overwhelming success.
Highlights include: App Store Game of the Year (Runner-up), a North America-wide Starbucks promotion, the OLO icon used in Apple marketing collateral for the iPhone5 and the pre-installation of OLO on iPad’s in Apple stores across the globe.
"A multiplayer classic: Elegant and irresistible, Sennep’s all-ages masterpiece lets up to four players enjoy games that can be as casual or hardcore as everyone wants them to be."
