A new studio centred around creative learning for kids.

Pok Pok

Remember when we said we were working on something new? Well, for the past few years, Snowman has been incubating not just a new project, but a brand new company!

Pok Pok is a creative studio centred around play-based learning experiences for kids. A few folks from our team had an idea to make an educational, digital experience for their own kids, and what began as a side project for their family turned into a company all of its own.

As parents and artists, Mathijs and Esther wanted their two toddlers to be able to use their iPads as a…

Celebrating life’s calm moments and the games that help create them.

Alto’s Zen Club

Since releasing Alto 6 years ago, we've noticed that many members of the community have stories to share about how they’ve played the Alto games through tough times in life. The ability to help people zen out is something we really value about games, so we’ve created a club on Snowman’s Discord server to celebrate the media that brings us these peaceful experiences!

How will it work?

At the end of every month, we’ll meet on Discord for a text-based catch-up with the Alto community. For our first meeting, we are going to run things like a book club—but for a game! Together we…


A brand new way to cruise the streets of LA.

Skate City introduces Pro Skate mode

Today, Skate City players will find that there’s a whole new way to skate through the city of Los Angeles! Pro Skate mode keeps each session fresh no matter how many times you’ve skated these streets before.

Just like skating in the real world, you never know when obstacles might pop up in your path! We’ve taken the element of spontaneity to a whole new level by challenging players to set high scores and complete objectives, all while having to navigate their unpredictable surroundings with quick reflexes.

In Pro Skate you’ll dodge pedestrians, flip over obstacles and escape security guards…


Reviewing the year’s highlights and what’s next for Snowman!

Today is Snowman’s 9th anniversary! This past year the entire world changed, and as we reflect on these last 12 months, two things stick out most — our players and our team.

With your support and motivation, our incredible team continues to pour their hearts into everything they do.

Looking back, it’s been a busy year for us…

Here’s a sneak peek.

Here at Snowman, we’ve been incubating something for quite a while and it’s almost time to pull back the curtain.

Alto’s Adventure by Team Alto

Today marks the sixth anniversary of the Alto series! We want to take a moment to reflect on this past year and everything that’s come before it.

In 2020 we were able to expand both Alto titles beyond a mobile experience with The Alto Collection. The members of the Alto community hold a very special place in our hearts, and watching it continue to grow with new players from The Epic Games Store, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox has been so rewarding. …
