Last weekend, some of our team members visited the Nesin Maths Village, in Sirince, Turkey, to lead a seminar on maths and game development with some of the students there. Not only did the team enjoy having the opportunity to share some of their knowledge about maths and game development, but they were blown away by how much they learned from the students themselves.

Last week, Gram Games was lucky enough to help Onaranlar Kulübü, an organization right here in Istanbul, set up their communal street library! The organization is a voluntary community that aims to repair, produce, share, and enhance our environment and society by working on creative, innovative, and encouraging projects that are used and engaged with collectively. When O.K. raised the idea of this project, the Gram team couldn’t have been more excited. They wanted to build a street library, right in Fenerbahce park, on the seaside. The idea was to share knowledge and literature - anyone can bring a book, leave it, and take another. Recycling, while learning together. We started the project in March, finalized it in April, and helped build the final project in May. Now the library sits right on the sea side, in a beautiful green park, ready for anyone to use. We’re so proud to have participated in this project, and cannot wait to see how people benefit from the library. This was Gram’s first collaboration with O.K., but we’re certain it won’t be the last. As a company that also cares deeply about people, and about sharing knowledge, experiences, ideas, and enjoyment with the community and the world, we can’t wait to see how we can further help the organization in the future.

Here at Gram, we’re all about family. That’s why, this father’s day, we invited all of the Dads of Gram to bring their children to the office, show them around, and hang out for a bit. Above all else, we want all of the Gram team to feel just as comfortable here at work as they do at home - family is a part of that. We were so happy to see everyone bringing their children into their Gram life, and to have them running around and playing in the Gram office! For so many of us, fathers are such an important part of who we are, how we’ve come to work at a place like Gram, and why we aspire to make great games. And we wanted to pay tribute to that. So, check out this video about the Dads of Gram, and how each and every one of our fathers have helped us. Happy Father’s Day!

We’ve launched not just one, but two, games - Bounzy!, followed by Merge Dragons!. So, we figured a little celebration was in order. A couple of weeks ago, we flew the whole London studio over to Istanbul for a weekend of all things Gram. As you might have seen earlier, we started out with a board game game jam (that may or may not have ended up being a drinking game game jam). We all then donned our best, and rolled right into a mega Launch Party - to celebrate the birth of Bounzy!, and of Merge Dragons! Not only was it a great opportunity to hang out with the whole team in one place - but we got to dance the night away, too! The party was a blast - complete with Mages serving drinks!
