In order to make fun games, you need to have fun in life! We believe that only people that know how to have fun truly know what it is. With this belief in mind, we have strived to create an environment that promotes fun and open communication.
 

People can stop by the cafeteria to enjoy a snack or drink, made available for everyone.
 

With a two hour lunch break, Cookappsians can let their mind and body take a break playing games, getting some exercise, participating in club activities, taking naps, or various other activities.
There are a number of diverse clubs that can be joined, with financial support provided so that participants can relax and focus on their activities.
 

Experience and knowledge of other cultures is important in the development of any person. That is why we take a company-wide trip to explore foreign culture once a year. Additionally, a trip is taken to a vacation spot within the country once a year to let everyone blow off some steam.
 

The last Friday of every month is designated as “Game Day”. It’s a day dedicated to just plain gaming from all genres and platforms to promote inspiration and, well, just have fun!
 

Our hope is that by offering one of the best working environments in the country, we help promote the development of fun and creative games.
