About Istet Games
True. It’s a funny name, but one that embodies the very core of our beliefs. We’re a company building an engaging platform of self-discovery and learning. In that spirit, we hope you took the initiative to Google our name’s meaning. If not, we’ll give you a hint (it’s right there in our slogan). Istet translates from Romanian to ‘Smart‘. We make games that make you smart. See, you learned something new already!
At Istet Games, we believe the next generation should learn through a medium that interests and engages them. As proud parents ourselves, we have a deep desire for our kids to have deep learning experiences that foster true curiosity about the world around them. It’s this curiosity, and our inability to tear them away from the XBox, that provided the inspiration for Istet Games.
Play Smart. Get Smart.
