Innovate smarter
with Game Thinking

Hi, I’m Amy Jo Kim

Game designer, entrepreneur, and startup coach. Through my systems design work on groundbreaking hits like The Sims, Ultima Online, Rock Band and Covet Fashion, I discovered how game designers craft deeply engaging experiences. Now I help startups, global brands, and entrepreneurs worldwide build experiences that people love and come back to – again and again.
