WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT US
Juan was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is deeply passionate, inspiringly creative and consistently reliable. If you want a partner who is willing to go in the trenches with you and always treats you as if you are his #1 priority, regardless of what else is on his plate, Juan is your man!
I look forward to the opportunity to work with him again someday.
Working with Juan Gril and the Joju Games team on PAC-MAN for Sparcade was a joy. From our first meeting on the product vision through the final project wrap-up, Juan’s passion for the classic arcade game was evident in every detail and his enthusiasm was contagious.
The Sparcade team delighted in Joju’s innovative art enhancements, clever gameplay additions and wonderful tournament designs. Bringing a strong, collaborative approach, the Joju team was always open to feedback, ready to revise and offer options based on licensor input, and took clear guidance on the changes needed to create a skill-adapted version of PAC-MAN that is fun to compete in for free or real money.
Joju delivers high-quality, on-time and on-budget work in the spirit of creative dynamism that inspires and reminds us all of why we get up in the morning: the joy of making great games.
While at Playdom/Disney, we hired Joju Games on more than one occasion to create mini-games within a larger game we were working on. We called them “mini-games”, but these were large, fully-featured games that could have easily stood on their own as a full game. Joju did great work time after time. And Juan, as the face of Joju, was a pleasure to work with … professional, responsive, and a full partner in the creative process.
As an initial step in writing this review, LinkedIn asks you to choose three of seven attributes, and this was really tough because all seven apply to Juan and to Joju: Great Results, Personable, Expert, Good Value, On Time, High Integrity, and Creative. I would work with Juan and Joju again without reservation.
I’ve been working with Juan now for over 8 years. Most recently he and his team built 2 very complex multiplayer games – Dance Planet and Rack N Roll Pool. You expect any developer to get the job done on time and on budget but what Juan brings is a passion for gaming. The games he produced for us turned out amazing because Juan wouldn’t have it any other way. He cares about making the most engaging and fun product possible.
While at Bonanza Media, the Joju team built several iOS and Android games for us. The experience was extremely collaborative and Juan showed great patience through all phases of the relationship. I’d happily recommend Juan on both a professional and personal level. Good all around person.
