It’s April, meaning it’s the beginning of the end for so many things we love like Game of Thrones and the Avengers franchise – but when old doors close, new doors open: Nintendo released their first LABO VR kits, and our Community Valkyrie discovered Doom Patrol on Space. As for us? We soft launched Gold Mania! in Canada and India, and even did a few giveaways to celebrate!
April Fools Streetwear Drop
We teamed up with some other Vancouver local studios – namely East Side Games, and A Thinking Ape – and created a unique streetwear line. Sure, it ended up being for fun (for the lulz), and we were all just hoping to update our communities with some of our new projects – but our Truly Social Games alt shirt was so coveted, we decided to give away a few. Congrats to our winners!
Shout out to A Thinking Ape for being awarded one of the Best Workplaces in Canada, placing in 5th as well as East Side Games’ nomination as a BC Tech Association TIA finalist for the Tech Culture of the Year award.
Gold Mania! soft launch
We soft launched Gold Mania! in select countries (Canada, India) with a couple of mini-games (more to come!), namely the return of an old favourite from Planet Gold Rush – Golden Gauntlet! Not only that, we introduced boosters to allow players to develop their own strategies in power-up timing.
With the return of the Daily and Weekly Win Real Gold Challenge – do you think you’ve got what it takes to top the leaderboard? If you’re in Canada, or India, find out by downloading Gold Mania! today:

Hoppy Easter Eggstravaganza Premium Spin giveaway
To celebrate the long weekend, we gave away Premium Spins in Gold Mania! as a little gift from our studio family to you and yours. We are still working through the queue to send out the gifts, so hold tight! We’re happy to get you sorted this week.
Truly Social in the community wild
Our Community Valkyrie attended the newly minted VR/AR Hub Open House a collaborative effort between Launch Academy, VRARA Vancouver Chapter, and more community partners such as Vancouver VR Community. Looking forward to the projects and immersive projects from startups who move into the space!
TechInColour hosted Beyond Diversity, a speaker series featuring different panelists, designed with space for dialogue to tackle some of the harder conversations. Sometimes in order for things to grow, difficult topics need to be conversed about from different perspectives. Thank you TechInColour for championing events like this.
It’s true. We had some hard conversations Thursday night – that’s why we’re here. Difficult conversations are part of making change; a key theme from the panel and something we demonstrated at the event. https://t.co/vxbQZp2Ler
