Modern multi-platform KENKEN game for The New York Times

Working with the incredible teams at the New York Times and Google, we created a multi-platform KENKEN game that showcases the power of Flutter on the web.

New York Times KENKEN puzzle app made its debut on stage at Google I/O 2019.

First Commercial Flutter Web App

Flutter is well-known as the best solution for mobile apps, but Flutter on the Web is a game-changer. The KENKEN app designed and developed by VGV debuted in the technical keynote of Google I/O 2019 demonstrating the power of Flutter on the Web.

Flutter on All Platforms

Using responsive design patterns and device specific customizations, VGV successfully demonstrated how a single codebase can create beautiful high performance apps for iOS, Android, mac, Windows, and the Web!

Incredible Productivity

VGV implemented continuous integration that published app updates to a Firebase hosting project, which drastically sped up design review and client feedback. Rather than building apps and running mobile app betas, the team could iterate in near real-time thanks to Flutter on the Web.
