The group started deal with Pok after understanding that kids apps did not have the liberty of building blocks and other real-world toys. Now the project is coming to life, and its creators supervise of Pok studios, a spin-off of Snowman.
The majority of the games in Pok Playground are directly inspired by timeless kids toys. There are constructing blocks, a digital paintbrush, and a virtual table covered in fun buttons.
Pok Pok has no in-app purchases and costs $4 a month or $30 a year (after a 14-day trial). The app will receive constant updates after it releases May 20th, though it will stay fairly small to keep kids from getting overwhelmed. As of now, Pok hasnt revealed plans to release its app on Fire tablets or Android phones.

From the developers of Altos Odyssey and Altos Adventure, Pok Playroom is a brand-new subscription-based app that motivates kids to explore their creativity without the accomplishments, failures, and goals experienced in most kids games. Coming to iPhone and iPad on May 20th, Pok Playroom costs $4 a month or $30 a year.
Pok Pok Playroom disregards (or straight-out avoids) many of the tropes found in kids games. You will not come across spectacular sound impacts, fancy animations, condescending tutorials, or talking animals in Pok Playroom, and the open-ended app does not set goals or force kids into recurring benefit loops. Instead, Pok Playroom resembles a virtual box of old-fashioned toys, offering kids the freedom to imagine their own stories and explore their creativity.
