Pillo is a game controller shaped like a pillow. Because of its soft and intuitive design, Pillo makes gaming accessible for anyone. Just hug, squeeze and press Pillo to control the objects in the games.
Pillo always comes in pairs. The Pillo games are designed to be controlled by two or more players. Players need to work together to win the games. Best of all, everyone’s a winner!
Pillo can be played by anyone. More and more games become available, tuned to the needs and wishes of different player-types. Whether you are young, old, fit, frail or disabled, with Pillo anyone’s an abled gamer!
The games for the Pillo controller are always non-violent, cooperative, joyfull and challenging. We work hard to keep it so for both our internal and external developers. This is how we maintain the loving Pillo philosophy!
