'16 Bit Awards Nomination for Best VR Game!
Good news everyone!
Kitty in the Box VR has been nominated at the ’16 Bit Awards in NYC for Best Virtual Reality Game! So come support and celebrate with us: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-16-bit-awards-tickets-29092442278
About the game
Kitty in the Box VR (“Kitty VR”) is a virtual reality game we developed accompanying Kitty in the Box 2. The goal is still the same: get the kitty in the box… Use laser pointers, cookies you can eat at virtually ZERO calories, kitty treats, and many more! You can even pick him up and throw him into the box — Whatever it takes, however the means!
Discover the truth to why cats love–no, need boxes so much. To them, boxing is not just some fun past time. To them, boxing unlocks rules of the universe.
To be Released Q1 2017
From a cute sandbox game with a goal, Kitty in the Box VR will be released as an immersive story-driven experience. Coming soon on Steam Greenlight!

One of the great things we do at Mokuni is help port and publish games into mobile platforms. One amazing great partnership* we have is with KBros Games (@KBrosGames), creator, developer and publisher great games including Albert & Otto, playable on your PC through Steam (copy-paste URL: http://bit.ly/2fCXYDH)!

Now that we have it playable on Android phones as well, Albert & Otto is now officially playable anytime anywhere for the great premium price of $1.99!
About the game:
Created, designed, and developed by Nikola Kostic of KBros (Twitter: @KbrosGames), Albert & Otto tells the story of a boy and a magical bunny who journey together and solve puzzles in order to get back what was taken from them. Traverse a haunting world set in 1939 Germany in search of a mysterious girl with rabbit ears. Utilize a little bunny in creative ways to solve puzzles. Levitate sheep, use them as torches or wolf bait and make your way through a land that seems to not fancy you being alive.
So Remember this icon of screaming sheep:
Download and enjoy!

NYCC 2016 Recap + Throwback!
It has been a little bit more than one week since New York Comic Con. We’re proud to announce that our Kitty in the Box VR project was well-received! We had children returning more than twice to come back and play with Sushi and people asking when the games (including Kitty in the Box 2) will come out!
Our only regret is that we did not get a bigger booth so more people could play. Even so, we are grateful to be able to be there at NYCC 2016. Indeed it was the highlight of the year.
Here’s a throwback video to reignite some feels:
(Remember with KitNipBox and the Cat Ball, you can get some great discounts with our promo code: KITTYINTHEBOX)
Anyway, Ciao for meow! Have an amazing weekend! And look forward to further updates about Kitty in the Box VR and Kitty in the Box 2 (hint: BETA test coming VERY SOON).
Confirmed: KIBVR at NYCC 2016!
We are so happy to finally announce here that Mokuni will be at New York Comic Con 2016!
NYCC Booth #: 1ECC21
We will be featuring our newest venture from the Kitty in the Box series:
Kitty in the Box VR
A little something about the game…
Developed by Mokuni Games and Initial Prefabs, Kitty in the Box VR is level-based game with a game-play premise as simple as its prequels: get the kitty in the box. You get to travel through worlds by teleportation through box-shaped portals triggered whenever you finish each level—however, why exactly you’ve been brought into this world… that’s up to you to find out.
In addition to VR, we will also install a green screen at our booth (pics soon!), so your friends can see you interact with the new world we have crafted for you.
So check out our demo (Youtube link) and we hope to see you THIS THURSDAY!
Many thanks to our partners and sponsors for this exciting event:
Playcrafting NYC Mobile Game of The Year
We’ve posted all over social media about this, but now it’s really sinking in with the award in the office.
To be honest, we felt we were so far from winning this award and continue to be humbled by the warm reception the game got. Since June, we demoed the game two, maybe three times and learned so much from those interactions. Each time allowed us to examine the game, make adjustments and test our theories.
One of the special things about this award is that it was voted on by the development community at Playcrafting NYC, meaning our peers who are creating amazing worlds enjoyed the thrill of getting in line for a Food Conga.
We’re hard at work continuing to tweak and test features in Food Conga. While we are honored to have received this award in 2015, we have so many exciting things planned in 2016. We can’t wait to share them with you all, and we will, but first we want to enjoy a bit of the season and the holidays.
Call for Food Conga Beta Testers
Since Kitty in the Box, we’ve been working hard on a new title. Before this game is ready to serve, we need some help with a “food inspection” of sorts. Food Conga is looking for beta testers on iOS and Android devices that can help prep for the public launch.
What is Food Conga? It’s an arcade-inspired game where you play as a chef looking to capture all his food that is running amok around town. To do that, you’ll need to match foods in conga lines before obstacles knock you out on your quest back to the restaurant.
To access the beta, please fill out THIS FORM for consideration. If you are picked, you’ll get notified.
Food Conga at Playcrafting NYC - Nov. 2015
As we’re gearing up for the release of Food Conga, we’re starting to show the game to the world. The November session of Playcrafting NYC was one of the first public demos of Food Conga and it was a blast. The game development community in NYC is fantastic and the feedback was incredible. Check out some of the pictures we snapped from the event hosted in Tumblr’s NYC office. Representing us on the demo stage was Kevin Chen and Fox Chen.
